Cyd moved to New Hampshire and got a degree in elementary education and was a classroom teacher for Moharimet Elementary School teaching mostly 3rd grade.  She has moved out of the classroom the last couple years,  and is now a “sustainability leader” for her district where she leads the way in lots of projects that deal with environmental education and stewardship of our earth.  One of her favorite projects is a maple sugaring operation that she helps coordinate and lead – “we have a sugar shack on our school property and boil the sap we collect from over 150 maple trees on our school forest.”

Soccer Memory: On the field: beating Princeton, the #1 seed in the Regionals in 1980 (when we were the #8 seed) — this victory staged our momentum en route to the National Championship. Off the field: a pre-game meeting before a contest with Harvard University. The team politely and respectfully listened to Coach Anna Rush’s pre-game strategy, only to be followed by a ranting Lisa Langworthy proclaiming that Harvard was in deep trouble. At that moment she unveiled a feline corpse, borrowed from anatomy lab, draped in a crimson (Harvard colors) cape and hanging from a noose. The next morning, the same corpse was discovered at the bottom of the hotel swimming pool.
