Manor College Women's Basketball first-year Head Coach Leo Mahon on Stoval: "Kiara has competed hard all season. She leads the team in most, if not all, categories. However, her true contribution has been in her leadership. She is, unquestionably, our team leader as she demonstrated this all season on and off the court. She leads the team in points per game average and, more importantly, her GPA at Manor. She has been a real pleasure to coach."
