2002-2003 THEME

Vol. 15, No. 30, January 20, 2003


Teresa Wilson
Husky Women’s Softball Coach Teresa Wilson

A Championship Softball Program

The one and only head softball coach at the University of Washington was introduced Friday. Teresa Wilson, starting the program from scratch upon her arrival 10 years ago, has built the Husky Women’s Softball Program into a national contender, and has been named PAC-10 women’s softball coach three times. A graduate of Missouri, Wilson took her first coaching job at age 22 at Oregon. She has also coached at Minnesota and has taken all of the schools she’s coached to post season and college world series.

Teresa told her audience that she “lives softball.” She was impressed by the BBRC’s support of the Eastside Academy and invited those students to the women’s softball games. Responding to a comment about the individuality of teenagers today, Teresa said she has had to tell her team to “leave all jewelry at the hotel, and that includes jewelry on the tongue and belly button. And, of course, I get back from the team, ‘You’re stifling our originality!’” MORE

It’s RYLA Time!

Every year about this time (seems to coincide with the Seattle Boat Show), Alan Bohling rises to recruit children of Rotarians and friends to register for the annual Rotary Youth Leadership Awards Conference (RYLA), which, this year, will be held March 6-9.

“Over the years, I’ve gathered dozens of testimonials from parents who have sent their kids to RYLA. It takes place at the Pacific Lutheran University campus and is designed for junior and senior high school students only. This is one of the few programs that we can give back to our kids. Some of the topics covered last year included ‘From Stumbling Blocks to Stepping Stones’ and ‘Walk in Someone Else’s Shoes.’”

“Sons, daughters, and other relatives are encouraged to send their child. We’ve even enrolled friends of Rotarians’ children. This is 100% funded by Rotary and is a great program.” Get your applications from Alan.
