Coach Quotes
"A.G. is a tireless worker and her motor never stops. She is as coachable a player as I have ever coached. She has always been a relentless defender and floor leader. Her offensive game has now caught up with her work ethic as she has developed the ability to score at all 3 levels. I would take her on any team that I ever coach. Foxhole kid."

- Coach Corey Barrett
Lebanon High School Basketball 

"Warrior, lock down defender, very high basketball IQ and a great teammate. No excuse attitude. Practices like she plays everyday (HARD). Gym rat. First in and last out of the gym. Tough as nails. Will do whatever a coach ask and answer with a yes sir or no sir. A coaches dream. She is a hidden gem and coaches should take notice of her or they will be missing out on one the best I have ever been associated with in my 20 years of coaching.  Simply put you want to win you want her on your team."

- Zach Martin
Athletic Director, Lebanon High School

"Aaryn Grace Lester is every coach's dream in a player. Her work ethic, positive attitude, and leadership qualities are second to none not only on the field but in the classroom as well. She simply makes her teammates better by providing them with the example of what they need to be in order to be successful."

-Jody Atwood
Softball coach Lebanon High School
