Lady Vols Win Championship #8!

Last night, the University of Tennessee Lady Vols team turned up the defensive heat in the women’s college basketball championship game, and their efforts secured them another national title. With a 64-48 victory over Stanford, our gals cruised into the record books with the program’s 2nd consecutive national championship and the 8th overall.

The greater Knoxville area folks regard the Lady Vols as part of their own family, and we are all bursting with pride. We are fortunate to have the greatest basketball coach in the history of the game, Pat Summit, to guide the young ladies who go through the program. We are going to miss the five fantastic players who will not be returning next year. It was historic for all five to be drafted today into the WNBA.

I will especially miss little Shannon Bobbitt. Shannon shares the same height as me – 5’2”. She came to the Lady Vols out of a junior college just two years ago. She is the shortest player in Tennessee history. Yet, Shannon was the point guard on the nation’s most celebrated women’s basketball team, providing leadership for two national championships. It just goes to show you, a big heart = big results! Shannon will be joining her friend, Candace Parker, on the LA Sparks team.

Congratulations, Lady Vols! We love you!
