The 5th Annual Hoop Troop Golf Classic was held on Monday at the Golden Eagle Country Club and once again, it was a huge success. Seventy-six golfers took part in the event while numerous other supporters attended the evening festivities which included a silent auction and reception. The group also had the opportunity to mingle with members of the 2003-04 women’s basketball team.
“Once again, it’s wonderful that this community comes out this early before the basketball season to support our efforts with what we are trying to do with our basketball program,” FSU head coach Sue Semrau said. “It’s exciting to see how many people are on board for the upcoming season.”
“Today’s golf tournament was really exciting,” senior Trinetta Moore said. “We got out there and we interacted with our boosters and supporters and played a couple of games and really had fun. They showed us a good time and I hope we show them a good time as well this season. We really apreciate everything they’ve done for us and continue to do.”
“It has been a great day,” Hoop Troop President Yvonne Sherron said. “The weather was perfect. It has rained everyday in Tallahassee for the last three weeks, except for today. We had a great turnout and tons of enthusiasm for a wonderful cause — to support women’s basketball. It just doesn’t get any better than this than. To come out, spend five hours outside, away from work, and support Florida State women’s basketball.”
“I thought this was pretty great,” freshman Alicia Gladden said. “Meeting new people and seeing how they support our team, I am just really looking forward to getting to know them better throughout the year. It’s very exciting just knowing that people care about our women’s basketball program and that they appreciate what we do.”
