La Sierra Athletes got together this week for a welcome back party. Food, fun and a swim in the pool highlighted the evening, which also saw many administrators join us in the fun. Recruitment's Bobby Brown and Sam Acosta along with Student Life's Dean Curtis came down to wish all teams good luck in the coming seasons.This was the first time anyone could remember all athletes coming together before classes had even started. It was a good opportunity for everyone to meet players from other teams and get to know each other. The Athletic Administration has put a major emphasis on the promotion of a single, unified, athletic department, not six individual teams. This party was a step in the right direction.
