Brizard on Phillips: “Katie is right
now playing center back. We kind of moved her from the midfield to
center back. She’s got good height, she’s got decent
speed, and she reads the game well. We’re looking for her to
be a part of that anchoring defense.”
In 2011 (Freshman): Katie saw extended playing time in
her freshman season, seeing action in 17 games and earning two
starts. She played more than 500 minutes as a defender and showed
plenty of promise. She also took two shots, one of which was on
goal. She was named to the Athletic Director’s Honor
HIGH SCHOOL: A four-year letterwinner out of
