Last week: Dillon stopped eight of nine shots in the Comets’ 2-1 upset of the defending Class 2A state champion Twin Valley in the opening round of states last Tuesday. On Saturday, the senior made four saves in Crestwood’s 5-1 win over West Chester East to advance to the PIAA semifinals.

What she says: “I’ve had to keep my confidence up throughout the playoffs definitely. It’s important to trust the defensive line. If there’s no trust, things can fall apart back there. I just have to keep my head on straight and if a goal goes by, I just need to clear my mind and be able to keep playing and being able to focus on the next play instead of the previous play.”
