Sure, it was a loss to Rice (4-3) and a win against Minnesota (6-1) but the highlight of the weekend for DU Women’s Tennis was off the court. The DU women’s tennis team was in awe when meeting LetsGoDU founder Damien Goddard in his corporate headquarter town of Houston.
The Pioneer legend witnessed the Pioneers first-hand against Rice and Minnesota – and provided tennis tips along the way. Goddard was known for a vicious backhand as a student at DU.
Some second hand reports state that some team members were moved to tears – not with the loss to Rice or the big win against Minnesota but with the opportunity to meet the Texas icon.
Goddard invited the team to visit Houston again. And his thought about the weekend? “I can’t believe they fly coach.”
