More than the play, the weekend was a great welcome home opportunity for several of our players. We landed at LAX on Thursday afternoon to be met in baggage claim by Marie Riggins, mom of redshirt senior, Liz, and Marlo Williams, mom of sophomore Ashlie Williams. They met us bearing food – the most delicious sandwiches from Mendocino Farms – and goody bags with snacks to hold us over for the weekend.
The cheering section was awesome with at least six families and extended families in the stands. It was also great to see Georgetown alumni in the stands and be able to chat with them after the match. Amy Callow Orr F’90 shared some words of encouragement with our players after our match against CSU Fullerton. Ashley Lancaster C’06 caught up to me after the Fullerton match as well. I so enjoy catching up with our alumni. It reminds me that what I am doing is so much bigger than the right now. We’ll keep working to make you proud!
We learned and and now it’s time to close the preseason chapter of our season. We’ll put everything we learned into play and get started on Chapter 2: BIG EAST Conference competition. I look forward to giving you a good read!
