Congrats to WUSA and Former Illini Coach Jill Ellis
I'm clearly a day late here, but have to tell you that I was so excited to watch the euphoria that the Womens' team wore all over their faces and play on Sunday night. I was texting Nat and the girls all throughout the game. #PlayLikeaGirl
But, yesterday I found out little nugget - via Oskee Wow Wow Today - that makes me like the outcome even more: Head Coach Jill Ellis is a former member of the Fighting Illini family. She coached the womens' team in their inaugural season back in 1997.
Go Illini. Congrats to Coach Ellis and whole team.
