Hey Badger fans! At last we are en route to sunny San Jose, California to take on the Providence Friars this Friday and Saturday. After a long summer of training, two weeks of practice, and a very early plane departure, the girls are beyond excited to put on their game jerseys.
Sophomore Annie Pankowski, California native is especially happy about returning to her home state to play.
"It's really exciting to bring the highest level of the women's sport to a place that hasn't seen it before," she said with a smile on her face. "We're looking to inspire some of the younger kids to see what's possible."
For some of the other girls, it will be their first time stepping foot in California. Mikayla Johnson, a junior for the Badgers, is thrilled to venture to a new destination.
"I'm excited for warm weather, to see some surfers, have good food, and some great shopping."
Let's hope San Jose will be everything she dreams it will be, and the Badgers can bring home a few wins as well.
