Women's Basketball Hosts Alumni Weekend; Hoists M Club Banner
March 16, 2016

In what has become an annual celebratory event, Team #43 of Women’s Basketball welcomed 28 alumni who returned to Crisler on February 6-7 for fun and fellowship among past and current student-athletes. Coach Kim Barnes-Arico was thrilled with the turnout, the engagement, and the spirited alumni game:

“This is a special year as we celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Michigan Athletics. Sheryl Szady, Team 1, noted that we had 39 of the 42 teams of Women's Basketball represented. Thanks to Sheryl for her efforts in helping the alumni family stay connected. Also, special thanks to Penny Neer '81 for sharing about her experience as a UM three-sport athlete and Olympian during our Saturday Brunch. Penny shared some basketball history and encouraged our players in their role as student-athletes.”

A pre-game highlight for the Wolverines’ came when the alumni raised the M Club banner as the women took the floor. The slideshow, including photos of the alumni is HERE. The women used the extra alumni inspiration to come out with a big 96-83 win over the Illini. All alumni are encouraged to stay in touch with the program, and to plan to attend this celebration every season!
