Soccer Memory: I had a lot of great memories but probably the greatest was loading up 2 vans with 20 girls and 2 coaches to travel out to Colorado. When we arrived, they had 2 inches of snow on the ground and fields. During our final game, I remember looking at the Garden of the God’s and they were looking back at us as we beat UCLA 5-1 in the final game. And of course the victory pizza dinner on the ride home — wow, what a year!
