April 2018 - 

"Thank you very much for all of the thoughtfulness you are showing with all the girls. You have been very supportive of our daughters and for that we are very grateful.  You are a terrific role model for them in many ways. I know that your competitive fierceness will have a lasting positive impact on them.  Your thoughtful approach really means a lot to us.  So in short, thank you for working so hard and pouring your heart and soul into teaching the girls to be their best!'

 

June 2017 - Following Team High School Camp in New Jersey:

"She was an All American at Shawnee High School, the best to ever come through, and is currently playing professionally. She is absolutely AMAZING. The girls and I learned so much for the short time we were with her.  I received such positive feedback from players and parents. She is truly one of the bests and so knowledgeable! The girls and I compared her to the Michael Jordan of women's lacrosse."

 

October 2016 - Following departure as Victory Lacrosse Girls Director:

 

"I have to be honest it made me really sad to hear you say that you are leaving Victory; I absolutely love you as a coach and you are the reason I try so hard to improve. I never got the chance to thank you before you left this afternoon, but I honestly think I have become the lacrosse player I am today because of you and everything you have thought me, not only with my game but with my character on and off the field.  I appreciate everything you have done for me to help me improve. You always motivated me to a great player and inspired me to follow my lacrosse dreams.
        Thank you for everything you have done the past four years. You have really made an impact in not only me but every single girl that you have coached. Victory definitely will not be the same without you. I wish you the best with whatever you are doing now and I really hope that I can still come to you for lax advise even though you are not my coach anymore. Thank you again, and I will miss you."

"Holly, I just wanted to send a quick note of thanks for all the superior leadership and coaching you have provided.  In my personal experience of playing collegiate athletics as well as significant time coaching, I was very impressed with your style and approach to coaching and shaping the girls under your direction.  I know my daughter has enjoyed the Victory program very much, and believe the foundation you helped establish will set the stage for long term success."

"Holly, wow!  I speak for our entire family when I say we are saddened to see you go, but so very thankful for what you have done for us these past few years. In particular the guidance, support and opportunities you've given us with respect to our daughter has been wonderful."

May 2014 - Following St. Margaret's Episcopal School Girls Lacrosse Season

"This is a belated thank you for doing such a great job with the high school team.  You seriously turned them into a group of believing overachievers.  We were so impressed with their spirit, their determination, and... their fitness!  Can't believe how many times we wore down the opponents!  You taught them to believe in themselves and to be competitive which is an enormous gift."

 

December 2013 - Following an Orange County Coach Clinic

"The clinic was fantastic. Holly had a great program and is an excellent teacher. I was able to begin teaching a few of the items learned to our team at the game that night and will introduce more at our practice this week."

May 2009 - Following Summer Season Coaching for Ultimate Lacrosse

"Holly was always giving up her time to make sure that each child gets the attention that they need. She is someone that the players request to have coach them and that, in itself, is a compliment to any coach would like to receive. I can attest to the difficulty of getting over 30 players from different schools and different backgrounds to come together an play as a team and Holly manages this task with ease. She was able to create an atmosphere that was fun and energetic. She also was able to get the athletes to take risks and get outside of their comfort zone; something notoriously difficult for teenage girls."
