Even though Cardona hasn’t put one in the back of the net yet, the forward knows what her role is on the team.
“The pressure is on me,” Cardona said. “Coach Potter has high expectations for me. So I want to fulfill his expectations and not be too nervous to where it affects my game.”
Cardona is only 5-foot-3. She knows playing at the D-1 level, her size will be used against her. However, she also plans to use her other abilities.
“I feel like I am a skillful player and can control the ball under pressure,” Cardona said. “I feel like teams in the Big 12 are going to pressure. So I just need to be relaxed on the ball, distributing and creating opportunities to score.”
