What Coach McCulley had to say about Skylar:

I have had the honor and privilege of working with Skylar's player development over the last several years. While it is evident to all who have watched her play, she is gifted with amazing speed and agility. What's more impressive (and maybe a little less known) is Sky's commitment to improve in her game each and every week, tallying countless hours of personal time on the ball. This relentless pursuit of excellence is ultimately what separates the great players from the good players. I am very proud to have been with Sky and her family on this journey and I am confident that through this beautiful game, Sky will continue to grow, not only as a player, but more importantly as a teammate and a tremendous young leader. 

 

My sincerest congratulations to Skylar on her Creighton commitment. Your ESC soccer family couldn't be prouder and we are eager to watch you blossom as a young Bluejay.
