The team of former letterwinners will include Jessica Boller (2000-03), Erin Gornes (1998-01), Christine Nelson (1994-97), Nikki Nicholson Chester (1992-95), Beverley Uipi (1994-97) and Margot Wallace (2001-04).
³We are all looking forward to the competition and having some fun playing,² said head coach Steffi Legall. ³I am looking forward to watching us play against, what I expect to be a very competitive alumni team. A lot of the former players currently play on adult teams and compete at the national level, so the competition on Saturday will be fun to watch.²
The 2005 Bulldogs have been back in the gym and preparing for the upcoming season since Aug. 8, including several two-a-day practices. Legall has been pleased with the team's efforts.
³We have stressed the importance of a strong desire to compete in almost every single drill, and the players have really taken to that attitude. This has been a very competitive and intense pre-season, and I am confident that the intensity level will carry over to our upcoming matches," Legall said.
Georgia's regular season opens on Aug. 27 at 7 p.m. against Charlotte in Athens.
