I didn't keep an official count, but I'm pretty sure Treasure Valley's Dawn of the Shred was on, at least, 90% of the emails that came from Idaho. She easily cruised to first place finishes in both the all-star and MVP races. Here is what some of the people who voted for her had to say...

"This skater is hands down one of the best jammers around. She plays with amazing agility and has a heads-up style of play that is hard to beat. Also, did I mention that she was the MVP of the Des Moines WFTDA Division 2 tournament?" - Anonymous

"This D2 MVP is everything you could want as a skater, She is a beast on the track. Shred is a calm storm, leaving blockers in the wake of her jams. She is inspiring and makes me want to be a better skater." - Anonymous

"Shred has been recognized many times this season as a standout player for TVR. She deserves every bit of it. She is a longstanding veteran and a leader both on and off the track. Her athleticism and calm demeanor is unmatched in Idaho. She was awarded MVP at our Division 2 tournament. She also inspired TVR's chant of the 2013 season. Crush, Crush! Smash, Smash! TVRrrrrr!" - Raggedy Ann-ihilation

"Shred is the prefect MVP, she plays every position better than anyone I have seen, and her focus and dedication to the sport is unparalleled. Not to mention she took MVP at divisionals this year." - Cougar Crush

"My MVP vote! Watching her skate for many years and is just someone to look up to for sure!" - Ornery Cuss

"Shred has a way of inspiring other skaters with out even knowing it. Her determination on the track affects the whole team, she inspires us all to work harder." - Sinister Kate
