Friday, November 25, 2022---Women of Troy Volleyball vs UCLA

From Heritage Hall, where I had taken pictures and videos of the Football Rally, my husband Jim and I walked to the Galen Center. There the Women of Troy Volleyball team were going to honor Seniors before the match vs UCLA. Shirts were given to the USC fans. Now, it was time to take pictures and videos of our women's volleyball team.

There were more fans at tonight’s game than in previous matches because it was a crosstown rivalry game.

Friday, November 25, 2022---USC Football Pep Rally

The night before our game versus Notre Dame, there was a pep rally at Heritage Hall. Trojan Candy arrived a little late because the pep rally started early at 4:30 pm.

My photographer friend Ray Wong took pictures at the rally and sent me his pictures. I used the next four pictures in my blog.

Here is his picture of the Spirit of Troy performing.
Some of our team stood close to the ladder.
