COACH’S COMMENTS: We are excited to welcome Cayla Francis to the Logan family. She is arguably one of the best talents that came out of the AIS in the past years. At 6'4 we expect her to impact our interior game on both ends of the floor. Her mobility and ability to be effective in the post and on the perimeter make her a perfect fit as we build our team for the next level!
