October is finally here! Fall is in the air, football is on TV, everything on campus is in full gear, which means one very important thing … basketball season is right around the corner! Last year, there were no words that began to describe my excitement as I returned to Lynchburg to lead our women’s basketball program at my alma mater. The emotion and passion continue to run very deep. I feel incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to give back to a school and program that did so much for me.
If there is one thing that I learned in my time at Lynchburg, it was without a doubt the value and importance of character and relationships in the strong family and community atmosphere that Lynchburg creates. With that being said, I know that we are at the helm of a special era in LC women’s basketball history. I want to take this opportunity to welcome you to our blog in the hopes that this will provide a chance for you to share in our team’s journey each year and every new season as we strive to establish a winning tradition.
By definition, the word believe means “to have confidence in the truth or value of something.” Our program’s foundation is based on the word “BELIEVE.” Each day our players continue to build on the dream of cutting down our first-ever ODAC Championship net — a journey that started a long time ago.
“The first step before anyone else in the world believes it is that YOU have to BELIEVE in something different than what has happened for the last 29 years of history; YOU have to BELIEVE that something different can happen.” –Will Smith
Come witness the MADNESS! Mark your calendars and come help kick off both the 2011-2012 men’s and women’s basketball seasons!
