What’s New this Month?
Virtual Wildcat Chat
This month, Letterwinners had the opportunity to hear from head coaches, Adia Barnes (Women’s Basketball), Mike Candrea (Softball), Kevin Sumlin (Football), and Sean Miller (Men’s Basketball) about their new perspectives and things that they have learned in this ever changing time. We want to thank Honorary Letterwinner Alex Flanagan for moderating this discussion as well as Director of Athletics, Dave Heeke for being a part of it. To view the chat, click here.
This month we also celebrated Father’s Day! Check out some pictures of Letterwinners who are dads with their kids!
