Notes On A Scorecard
Sept. 26, 2012
NEXT HOME GAME
We are very excited and honored to be chosen to participate in the 2013 Cowboys Classic. We’ll face LSU on Aug. 31 at Cowboys Stadium. It will be our second time playing in the contest. We’ll have many more details on the game to come, but please go ahead and mark your calendar for that exciting opener to our 2013 season.
TEE IT UP FOR TCU
The 34th-annual Horned Frog Classic is Oct. 15 at the historic Colonial Country Club. Sponsorships are still available for this special day of golf supporting TCU’s men’s and women’s golf programs. The event features golf with on-course contests, breakfast, lunch and dinner and a great player gift package. Help us set the all-time record for “The HFC” and get your sponsorship package today. Please call the Frog Club office at (817) 257-7700 or register online at www.tcufrogclub.com. Don’t forget, the winning team receives a trip to Pinehurst in North Carolina in late October to represent TCU at the Acura National Collegiate Alumni Tournament.
Congrats to men’s golfer Julien Brun who continues to tear it up on the links. Julien became only the sixth amateur to win a European Challenge Tour event Sunday when he took top honors at the ALLIANZ Golf Open Toulouse Metropole in his home country of France.
ON THE DOCKET
In addition to our Saturday 6 p.m. football game at SMU, it’s a big week for our volleyball and soccer programs as they host their first home Big 12 contests. Volleyball (12-2, 1-0), which rallied from a 2-0 deficit to win 3-2 at West Virginia in its first conference match Saturday, welcomes Texas Tech tonight at 6:30 p.m. in the Rec Center. We then travel to Iowa State Saturday to face the 19th-ranked Cyclones. Soccer (5-4-1) will make its Big 12 debut with a pair of home matches this weekend at Garvey-Rosenthal Soccer Stadium. We host West Virginia Friday night at 7 and Kansas on Sunday at 1 p.m. Our women’s cross country squad will compete at the Notre Dame Invitational in South Bend, Ind., while the men head to Stillwater for the Cowboy Jamboree. Both our men’s and women’s tennis programs will also be in action at the ITA All-American Championships.
MEET THE STAFF
If you’ve called my office or been by in person, you’ve come across Monica Ray-Goth. She’s my anchor. Monica is in her seventh year working as the executive assistant to the director of intercollegiate athletics. She began in her current role in January 2006 under my predecessor Danny Morrison. Prior to coming to athletics, Monica worked in our alumni relations office. All told, it’s 11 years at TCU for my favorite native of Hobbs, N.M.
SPANNING THE GLOBE
This week’s edition of TCU supporters flashing the Horned Frog sign and apparel from all points worldwide comes from Jay Waxse in Cregennen Lake, southeast of the city of Barmouth, Wales, United Kingdom. Cadair Idris is the mountain in the background. Please continue to send me (firstname.lastname@example.org) images to share.
