Thanks to all of those who “tried out” you all did a great job! Everyone should be proud of themselves for putting your skills out there for critique.  We have accepted 8 positions for the team knowing that the cream will come to the top of the jar in a matter of time.

  • Abby Bell
  • Katie Owen

 As you know the actual team will consist of 4 team members and 1 Alternate.  I also will be assigning a team manager and two “apprentices” that will assist the team and practice with the team each time in preparation for next year’s recruiting.  Solidifying an assigned position will be up to you! Fight for it! Work for it! Show us that you want it. Our first practice/meeting will be Monday October 27th from 9:00 to 11:30 at the UCCU center kitchen.
