One of the all-time Wahine greats Angelica Ljungquist dropped into practice today to say hello. Wouldn’t let me take a picture of her, said she had just come from the beach. But she looked great. She is in law school in Sweden, hasn’t decided what her specialty will be. Will have more on her later when I transcribe the interview.
Shoji introduced her, spoke about how she was a great all-around player, great passer before the libero was introduced. Said that when the libero was added that she called him to say that ‘they just eliminated me.’ meaning a middle who played 6 positions.
With the arena being prepped for the scrimmage, the team was in Gym 1 for the first time this season. Team bonding meant they swept and mopped the floor, standard procedure normally, and setting up nets.
Pretty humid. lots of water breaks. Small-group sessions by position. nothing real exciting to be honest.
Season tickets at 3793, closing in on 3799, which was the last high in 2008. High was over 4,000, believe in the Kahumoku-Willoughby years.
