A special Happy Graduation to Emma, Kristina, Sam and Shea, our 4 newest alums!  We are looking forward to seeing what the future holds and of course excited for their return to the court in our 2015 Alumnae Game!

What a Spring!

It's hard to believe that the spring semester is in the books - exams are over and campus is preparing for Saturday's Commencement.  I clearly remember the Class of 2014 move-in day; four years have gone by so fast!

Our team has been busy this spring, participating in different campus activities and also spending some time in the gym improving their game.  It's been a great spring and we are all looking forward to the coming season!

Our team participates in the ALC/SAAC TeamWork event.
Teams fan out around the surrounding neighborhoods and work on spring clean up and beautification projects.

Mayser was as full as I've ever seen it when Jane Goodall came to campus.
It was an inspiring talk and many of our players were in the crowd.

Leadership in Action

Thanks to a partnership between the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) and the United States Marine Corps (USMC), our team recently had the opportunity to take part in the USMC's Leadership in Action Workshop.  We spent some time learning about and discussing the Marine Corps' Leadership Traits and their Leadership Principles.  Our players did a great job relating the discussion to what we do together as a team on the basketball court.  After an insightful conversation, we headed outside for a team workout led by the Marines that put the leadership traits and principles to the test.  Each group was given a set of tasks to complete within certain parameters, only to have the situation change once they were in it.  Team members had to communicate clearly with each other in a pressure filled situation.   All in all, it was a great evening.  A big thank you to the Marine Corps officers who led our workshop and shared their experiences with us.  Check out our Facebook page for more pictures.
