“(Coach) Mox was very thankful that I came back and just knowing that she told me I had the chance to write my name in record books,” Calip said. “I didn’t really pay attention to that until Ben or Megan told me some records that I am creeping up on. It’s a blessing to wear this jersey. This community is great, I absolutely love all the fans. I’ll always have my name in the record book is really crazy because I never thought I’d be breaking all these numbers.”
