Members of Wesleyan Women's Basketball Participate in Community Service with Local Church
On Sun., April 11, 2010 during Cross Street/Wesleyan Community Day, Wesleyan University was given the Community Service Award by Cross Street AME Zion Church for its many years of service to the Cross Street Tutorial Academic Center (CSTAC). CaVar Reid '10 was named Wesleyan Student of the Year.
Other highlights included members of Wesleyan Orchestra performing while members of the Wesleyan women's basketball team also took part in the festivities by mentoring and talking to the children. The hoops player handed out goodie bags to the children. Those present from the basketball team were (along back row from middle across to the right) Kendra Harris '13, Erin Gold '11, Sam LaCroce '12, Melanie Ferdinand '12, McKinley Tennant '11, Allie Southam '11 and Leigh Stewart '13. The community children were so thrilled to have college students to look up to.
Wesleyan, which fielded a women's basketball team devoid of seniors during its 8-15, 2009-10 campaign, faced one of the most difficult schedules in the country. Of the Cardinals' 15 defeats, 11 came against a group of eight teams that qualified for the NCAA Division III tournament. Seven of those eight squads advanced past the first round of the NCAAs.
