Director of Coaching, Seamus Donnelly says, "We are so proud of the Penn Legacy girls who have made the Inferno roster this season. Maddie, Brooke, and Aubrey were fantastic players for us. As a club we are so focused on the development of the players in our care, so when we see tangible results like this it is very satisfying. But make no mistake about it, these three girls deserve all the credit because of the talent they possess and how hard they have worked at improving their game. I have seen the Inferno play twice now, and that is a seriously high level of play, so it really is quite an accomplishment to make their roster. I wish them, and the team, all the best this season."
