Another beautiful day down at the former Fort Ord near Monterey. There weren’t enough alumni women to actually form a team, and Alena Porte and another San Jose Seahawk, as well as Betsy Hill, one of the CSUMB coaches who long ago played at UCSC, took to the field for two sevens matches of seven minute halves. Lots of passing the ball about and scoring, especially by Sabrina Bacuangan. I have to wonder what her speed is in the 40 meter dash. Bruce Carter arrived as the second match was ending, and as I missed the banquet the previous evening, it was great to see him before he leaves for Arizona. We ended up touch judging for Neil McDonald for the men’s alumni-varsity match.
I’m looking forward to how Cal State Monterey Bay will do next year. They have a building program, with many enthusiastic student-athletes. Both the men and women’s sides will be looking for coaches, by the way, so anyone interested who lives in or near the Monterey Bay area might want to contact.
