What’s better than playing ACC games?I am so lucky I get to compete in the ACC. As a French player, I didn’t know about the ACC until I came over to play for Florida State a little more than three years ago.
At the start of a new training week before our first conference game, my coach looked at my teammates and me to announce that we were halfway through our season. Although none of us realized how far along we were, his statement hit us as hard as a slap across the face.
As Pia Sundhage prepares to coach her final match with the U.S. women's national soccer team tonight in Colorado, we take a look back at her tenure with the club:
Nothing quite compares to winning a championship. It's something that you cherish forever and will never forget. Just the memories of the celebration afterward are something you can never really duplicate, never even come close to matching.
Our coach, Pia Sundhage, has a record that speaks for itself: two Olympic golds and a World Cup silver medal. But it goes way beyond that. She has done great things for the team and for the game.
Whenever we travel, my teammates and I always have one thing on our minds: What in the heck are we going to wear? Unlike most teams, we don't wear sweats on the plane. Instead, we take a more professional approach and dress in business casual.
Outside of basketball, most of my favorite activities are outdoors and around water. Whenever I get a little downtime in San Antonio, I can usually be found outside by the pool, but most of my other favorite activities tend to be water related.
When your career takes you out on the road, it’s always changing and exciting. But it also requires a lot of patience, especially your first season out. I’ve taken on a full load this year and although it seems like a lot, I love every second of it!
The hype around Texas-Ole Miss had been mounting for months. If there's one thing Oxford is good at, it's gossip. Had I heard all the hotels were booked and houses were renting for $20,000? That ESPN's "College GameDay" was coming?
HOYLAKE, England -- There was a glimpse of what is to come with the performance of 16-year-old Jing Yan, the youngest Chinese player -- man or woman -- to have qualified for a major.Though she was not making quite the same impact as 15-year-old Lydia Ko, who won the amateur medal, Yan survived prequalifying and final qualifying before making the halfway cut with scores of 80 and 69.
HOYLAKE, England -- It was “Best of British” day at the Women’s British Open on Saturday. Players and spectators alike dressed in red, white and blue, and there was even a look-alike Queen.
Our team is very talented, and I don't just mean on the field, either. Recently we challenged ourselves to learn how to do the perfect handstand.It all started this summer during the Olympics. Watching the Fabulous Five take on Russia and China and eventually win the gold got us all wanting to try our own gymnastics.
After playing in front of a record crowd at BYU and losing 3-1, the team was looking to take the positives from the weekend and implement them for our upcoming Big Ten opener. Since our season started, we have gotten into a set routine during the week to prepare us for the next game.
I don't remember exactly when the phone call came, but it was sometime during my freshman year at the University of Connecticut. It was maybe a week or two after the 2006-07 women's basketball season had ended with a disappointing loss to LSU in the Elite Eight.
HOYLAKE, England -- Tournament golfers never fail to allow plenty of time before a competitive round. They will spend half an hour or so on breakfast, and they know precisely how long it will take to get to the course.
