Sunday, January 29, 2023---USC Men’s Tennis vs UCLA Men’s Tennis

7001When my husband Jim and I arrived at the Mark’s Stadium, the seating section we always sit in was filled with USC students. Jim asked one of the women in front of him if they were Helenes. She replied that they were, and he told her that I was a Helene alumna. Then they wanted to know more about me. When I was an undergrad at USC in 1967, I was a member of the Amazons. In 1968, the Amazons became the Helenes. I had to get a picture of the Helenes. Luckily, I was able to ask a tennis team photographer, who was on the tennis court, to take a group picture of our section with my camera.
