Wave Chat with Rick Dickson - June 1, 2011



June 1, 2011

Dear Green Wave Fans,

We can just about put another year in the books and we are going out on a high note in track and field. The team participated in the NCAA East Regional meet and our very own Ana Ruzevic qualified in the javelin for the NCAA Championships June 8-11. It is her second straight trip to the championships.

But just because the regular seasons are over, it doesn't mean that our young men and women won't be working all summer to get better at what they do. Some of our golfers will be playing in tournaments. A number of our baseball players will be playing in summer leagues around the country. Many of our student-athletes will be in summer school and will be working out on campus on their own and with their teammates.

By the way, you have a great chance to provide scholarship support to the Green Wave by buying some of the terrific items on sale through the online Tulane Grads and Dads Auction. Items include dinners with coaches and several packages of Premier League Soccer and European soccer memorabilia. Plus some great one-of-a-kind items featuring New Orleans Saints/Tampa Bay Buccaneer experiences. For TV fans, there are two awesome items: four tickets to the American Idol Live! Tour this summer in New Orleans or Long Island, NY with meet and greet passes and a chance to attend the New York City premier of the final season of HBO's Entourage!

This is my final Wave Chat of the academic year. Unless news and events dictate differently, my next Wave Chat will come your way in late August. Meantime, have a great summer.

Roll Wave,

Rick Dickson
