lafayette Women's lacrosse 2011. Forgot to mention...

This girl, #26, had her last game of her collegiate career this past weekend.
Through injuries, and a coach that had a different agenda, one that did not include the seniors and juniors-
She made it to the end, never quitting.

The final revenge to her coach that has had a HORRIBLE record- she scored 4 goals her last game!
And, she could have done that all season. But, the coach preferred to sacrifice the team rather than play the girls she didn't recruit. Very selfish.
At least my player hasn't been alone. she suffered with the other two seniors and most of the juniors.
And at least she loved the school AND the girls on her team!
Too bad there isn't a good coach right now. But hopefully that will change soon :)

That stinks. We had a similar thing happen with baseball in HS....eventually, they get theirs. Sometimes it takes awhile, but it will come back to bite her in the butt sooner or later.

It really sucks that coach did that to the Seniors especially their last game. Still a great experience for M and I'm sure she will carry it though her life. Time for the next chapter to begin.

Hi. I just read your question from a couple of years ago about French preppies on the blog Stuff Parisians Like. You may have already gotten your answer, but in case you haven't, I'll answer it here.

French "preppies" are known as BCBG, an acronym for Bon Chic Bon Genre. (Has nothing to do with the store BCBG in the US). They are sometimes from old, aristocratic families, but usually they are haute bourgeois, working in finance, politics, etc...

In Paris, BCBG usually live in the 16th arrondissement, also known as A-N-P, an acronym for Auteuil-Neuilly-Passy. Neuilly sur Seine is a posh suburb just outside of the 16th and Auteuil and Passy are the two neighborhoods that make up the 16th.

BCBG can also be found in the 6th, 7th, 8th and in other posh suburbs and in the city of Versailles.

BCBG love the Dordogne region and often have weekend/country family estates there. Ile de Re is the French Nantucket and is the first choice for BCBG summer home/get away.

BCBG are usually more style/fashion conscious than American preppies, though their clothing choices are always restrained, conservative and classic.

This is the French equivalent of the Official Preppy Handbook: http://www.amazon.com/BCBG-Guide-chic-genre-French/dp/2020091402/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1304024678&sr=8-1

It is a bit outdated, but still very relevant and will give you an idea about BCBG manners, schools, upbringing, clothing, etc...

Here is a spoof on BCBG, about 20 yrs old, but still very funny: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8scrJeZECdE

BCBG are generally detested in France and seen as elitist, which is very offensive to French sensibilities. Their manners are mocked and their neighborhoods are deemed passe. (There is a play on words with passe and Passy-get it?)

One other note, currently Lacoste shirts, in France, are only worn by suburban thug boys. It would be VERY un-BCBG to wear Lacoste currently. Kind of like what happened to Tommy Hilfiger in the 90s (though TH was never preppy in the true sense). This is sad, but true.

Enjoy!

Coaches. Don't even get me started. Some are there for the right reason....some aren't.

MOTR-you are so right. karma.
Frau- she is a bit of a bully
Ryan! OMG! I just learned a lot! I hope you dont mind, I am putting this on my blog, awesome.
OHN, isnt it true? She wasted talent and hurt so many girls on her team to fulfill her own agenda. her 3-15 record isnt saying much.
