LANCE KEY ON NELSON
"Ariana arrived early in the spring, and although things were unexpectedly cut short, she was able to benefit from an early transition. She's smart, and learned a lot about herself and the demands of the college environment. As an attacking player, she is a strong, talented player with the capability of causing problems for the opposition's defense."
