Sunday, November 8, 2015---Women of Troy Basketball vs. Cal State San Marcos

Sophie Bukovec, Sara Hughes and Dr. GeneBefore the Women of Troy exhibition began, Trojan Candy saw two familiar faces sitting in the stands. Friend Dr. Gene wanted to take a picture with the two Women of Troy Sand Volleyball players. So we walked over to them.

It was so nice to visit with Sara Hughes (1/31/2014) and Sophie Bukovec (3/5/2015). Sara told me that she and Sophie were volunteering on campus. I took this picture of Gene and my two friends. FIGHT ON, Sophie! FIGHT ON, Sara! FIGHT ON, Gene!

Ronald and J.J. JonesDuring the exhibition, several football players came to watch the women play. One particular player sat near Trojan Candy. I recognized him right away and walked over to talk with him. Ronald Jones II and I talked about our birth state Texas. Then I met his younger brother J.J. who was visiting from Dallas. J.J. told me he runs track. Possibly another Trojan! FIGHT ON, RoJo! FIGHT ON, J.J.!
