2012-2013 Alumnae Brunch

Every year the Backcourt Club looks forward to the Alumnae event…past players come back to reconnect with ole teammates and forge new bonds with players from other years. The F-Club was the venue for the Alumnae Brunch where BCC members and former players enjoy good food, good fellowship and good memories.

We were fortunate to have two speakers address the group.

Darlene Werhnyak, above, described how she was asked by Dr. Ruth Alexander to coach the first Florida women’s team – which began as a club team. We sometimes forget just how difficult it was for our early “Lady Gator” teams. These first coaches and players truly paved the way for those who followed. We thank you!

Sarah Lowe, above on the the right, also spoke to our group about her experiences playing Gator basketball and how that influenced her life afterwards. Her achievements are many including being a co-founder of Kujali International, a non-profit organization which works to provide life-changing educational opportunities to disadvantaged youth in East Africa. Her success after graduating from the program makes Gator Nation very proud!

We did mention the food, didn’t we? As a famous cook once said, it was “Yummo!”.

Coach Page also got in a word or two. She is both our coach and an alumna. How special is that?

Oh and the game that took place later that day…the Gators killed Bama!

Thank you alumnae and members for such a special time!
