More Dance Details Announce
May 1, 2013 - More Dinner-Dance Details
We are delighted to announce Lizzy Stemke as the keynote speaker for this year's banquet. Many of you know that Lizzy is UGA's head volleyball coach, but I'll bet few of you are aware of her illustrious playing career and coaching credentials.
Lizzy knows what it takes to win. She set the Wisconsin Badgers to two Big Ten titles and an NCAA runner-up finish, being named Big Ten Player of the Year and twice earning AVCA All America honors in the process. She played for two years on the U.S. National team before turning her career to coaching. Prior to being named UGA's head coach in December, 2010, she helped John Cook coach Nebraska to four NCAA titles.
It makes all the sense in the world for Coach Stempke to speak to the A5 Family, as this fall no less than five of our alumnae will be on the Bulldog Roster--Kaylee Kehoe, Gaby Smiley, Lauren Teknipp, and current A5 players Elle McCord and Amanda Dachs.
Unfortunately our banquet falls into an NCAA "quiet period" this year, so Lizzy will be precluded from talking directly with prospective student athletes or their parents (i.e., frosh or older), so we ask that you respect this restriction to keep UGA from running afoul with the NCAA.
If you have special dietary restrictions, please email those prior to Wednesday to Banquet Boss and 13-3 Coach Carl Whitmire: email@example.com.
If you would like to come but have neglected to purchase a ticket, we can accommodate you on a will-call basis provided that you email Jeff Black not later than 5/1. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lastly, we are in need of volunteers to come to the event early enough--say 5:30-- to collect tickets. If you are willing to serve the Club in this capacity, please email Jeff as well.
