Soccer Season

It's been another exciting year for the Generals! They have had a surprising season-- with a record so far of 11 wins, 2 losses and 3 ties. They were the #1 seed in the conference for a good part of the season, but then they tied their last game and lost a coin toss-- forcing them to play as the #3 seed going into the tournament. odac first round
Here they are after winning the first round game of the tournament. Now we'll all head over the semi-finals and finals this weekend to watch them play some teams that will be good matches. I'm nervous all week! And Jeremy makes fun of me because I have some silly superstitions, but they've all been proven to work-- so.... I'll keep showing up purposely late to the games (approximately 5 minutes late, no more, no less), wearing "normal" clothes (can't wear anything that has WandL on it), not listening to the radio station 91.5 on the way(this is really bad luck), and possibly arriving with a Twix bar in hand for the head coach(from their winniest season ever). These "traditions" started long ago, and whenever I switch things up, good things DO NOT happen!

We've sat thru a lot of games!
We've seen lots of alums come back this year, which is always so much fun. Even some parents of former players are showing up- we all want to see them go all the way!

Wish them luck this weekend!
