Nolan on Blain: "One of the most talented players on our team and it's only bad luck with injuries that have prevented her from emerging as a star in our conference. She has worked hard to recover after two difficult season-ending injuries and deserves the chance to show everyone what a great player she is. I expect her to be an important player for us this fall and I know how excited she is to get back on the field."
