THE STAGE IS SET

The NCAA Women’s Final Four games are set for this Sunday and Tuesday in Nashville, Tennessee. Congratulations to Stanford, Connecticut, Notre Dame, and Maryland on their outstanding seasons to date.

When you think about it, it’s an incredible foursome. Both Connecticut and Notre Dame head into the weekend undefeated. Stanford (33-3) returns to the Final Four for the sixth time in seven years led by senior All-American Cheney Ogwumike. Former University of Arizona basketball player, Brenda Frese, and her Maryland Terrapins head to Nashville with a 27-6 record. The Terps start two freshman. Coach Frese has “never let her freshmen use the excuse that they are freshmen,” and it’s paid off. Our game is well represented - best of luck to all four teams!

AMANDA FROST’S NEXT STEP

Amanda Frost is one of 80 players that will be participating in a Pro Combine in Nashville this weekend. There will be scouts from both the WNBA and foreign teams in attendance. The combine will begin on Saturday with individual drills and 5 on 5 play. The top 40 players will advance to Sunday’s session. Amanda has been working hard on her game since the end of the season. She has been in the gym daily working on shooting, ball skills and conditioning. Good luck Amanda!

“YOU HAVE BRAINS IN YOUR HEAD . . .

. . . You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.” Our team participated in two career preparation workshops recently. They, along with other NAU student-athletes, learned the essentials of job-seeking, career preparation, and self-marketing through a series of lectures, roundtable meetings and practicals. They prepared resumes and business cards, dressed in interview attire and networked with representatives of 20 companies from around the country including American Express, Enterprise, Aflac, and The United States Air Force. Kudos to NAU Assistant Athletics Director for Academics, Pam Lowie, and the rest of our NAU Academic Support team for a career workshop and fair well done!
