Exciting New Feature Coming!

Exciting New Feature Coming in June!
Surprise addition many have requested.
I frequently set expectations in these newsletters so you know what is coming. A new feature, athlete pictures & bios was mentioned in last month’s newsletter (it is on schedule for this month and will be a little more than pictures & bios). Part of the reason I do this is to set my focus for the coming month and get your feedback for same. Many email me with comments about these and I sometimes adjust based on some excellent advice, requests or points you make. Well, this month, I’ve set my priorities which include adding another much requested feature.

Ranked Athlete Spotlight

“What??? Are you serious?” Those were my first words when I received the official call last October informing me that, in May of 2017, I was going to be inducted into the University of Pennsylvania Athletics Hall of Fame as a member of the 10th class of inductees (Class X). I tried to hold it together throughout the conversation, but I just wanted to scream with joy – which is exactly what I did when I hung up the phone! My youngest daughter said she had a feeling she knew what the phone call was about when she heard me running through the house screaming.
