2016 championship ringTrojan Candy got this beautiful replica of the 2016 NCAA Championship Women's Soccer ring during the half-time of the USC-Colorado Women of Troy Soccer Match. Our team was ahead 2-0.

Amy Rodriguez and Ryan ShillingIn addition to the ring, I also got to see a good friend. Two time Olympic Gold Medalist Amy Rodriguez (8/19/2012) came to the match along with several teammates. They, along with their coach Ali Khosroshahin, were being honored for their 2007 NCAA Soccer National Championship during the halftime. Trojan Candy took this picture of Amy with her son Ryan Shilling. Amy told me that she tore her ACL in April and is recovering. She wants to play again for FC Kansas City in the National Women's Soccer League. Get well, Amy, and FIGHT ON!
