DiBernardo is a three-time All-Big Ten selection and a two-time All-American. She has already competed on the international level as well, and the best part is - after all that, she is still not satisfied.
"I just like improving as a player," DiBernardo said. "You can always do better and improve, so I think that's something I strive on, and it keeps me going."
Her head coach Janet Rayfield seems something special in the senior - something that goes well beyond her talent.
"She has always had the humble piece of it that you need to be a leader and to have that mental toughness," Rayfield said. "Now there is a confidence and maybe even an arrogance in a very, very good way. I think that has allowed her to continue to excel."
DiBernardo led the team with eight goals and 21 points last season, despite missing seven games.
