I just put a story to bed about Newman women’s basketball coach Tracy Anderson and her team’s trip to San Antonio last Thursday to play Incarnate Word.
Here’s the gist: Anderson tried to take a different route back to the team’s hotel and ended up playing the role of Dr. Jack Shephard to a guy who crashed in front of her. Without the beard and all the angst, of course.
And while their coach was out trying to save somebody’s life, the Newman players disobeyed Anderson’s orders and got out of the van to direct traffic away from the accident — which occured on an off-ramp off Interstate 10 — and a couple of them went and got a concrete slab to help bust out the window of a car that had just wrecked and had an unconscious, bleeding-from-the mouth passenger trapped inside.
I’d tell you more … but what fun would that be? It’s in Monday’s Eagle, so read up.
