Hey Women's Basketball fans!

It's me Chanise Jenkins a.k.a.  - Trixy! A lot of exciting things have been going on since my last blog and I cannot wait to share them with you!

Summer school has begun and our entire team is here!  Yes, you have guessed it; our freshmen have finally made their way to sweet ole DePaul! We are really excited to have our freshmen on board with us, and I am really looking forward to a promising season in the new BIG EAST!

Since the NCAA has changed the rule that women's basketball can now practice in the summer, our coaches have not wasted any time, putting that into effect. Our first practice as a whole team was on Monday.  I could tell that the returning players were excited! We all took turns leading and talking to the freshmen and made sure they each understood what was going on. Although the freshmen were a little overwhelmed, they still showed us some skills and those could not be overlooked.

The team recently volunteered for the Sheffield Garden Walk - one of the many volunteer activities we do throughout the year.  At the Garden Walk (Check out some of the photos below), we worked in one of the concession stands and made, grilled and sold nachos, bratwursts, hamburgers and pretzels to the Lincoln Park community. It was a great time and nice to be able to give back to the community that supports us throughout the year. The proceeds from our stand benefited the St. Vincent de Paul soup kitchen for the needy.

In other news, two of our returning players had birthdays this past month, and what's not exciting about that?! Megan Podkowa and Centrese McGee have both been blessed to see another year, and be lucky enough to spend it with yours truly. ME! :-)

Alright Blue Demon fans it has been real. I hope everyone is just as excited as I am for this upcoming 2013-2014 season! With your continued love and support, I know we can succeed!  With that in mind, keep bringing the blue! I will write again next month and thanks for reading!

Yours truly,
Chanise "Trixy" Jenkins #13
