Coach Rayfield on Cooke: "Charlotte has shown she can be dangerous, and she has shown she can score goals. This season, as we look to fill the shoes and the goal-scoring from the previous senior class, we need Charlotte to do both of those things consistently. Her physical and psychological stamina will be critical elements in making that happen. Charlotte has developed a tactical understanding that she now has to translate to decisions on the field and she could have a breakout senior campaign."
