“Having the opportunity to play for this outstanding program as well as transition into the role of a coach has been an incredible experience. Our program is rooted in rich tradition and prides itself on being a family. Our family would not have the successes that we do each season without our incredible donors and supporters. As a player I caught a glimpse of what our donors provide for us, as a coach I have seen the generosity of others transform the lives of our players. Through your support we are consistently utilizing resources to continue the rich tradition of our program, while also pushing ourselves to be the best we can be as coaches, students, athletes and prideful members of the WWU community.” Sydney Donaldson, Graduate Assistant Coach 2015, 16 & 17.
