PIERRE ON HONORE... "Nadiege is one of the most gifted athletes I have ever coached. She has the ability to dominate a match with her devastating attack and powerful swing. She has already enjoyed a stellar career at Siena and this season will provide her an opportunity to leave a `Hall of Fame' legacy. With two MAAC Championships already to her credit, Nadiege will be the major force behind our drive for a third title."
