This week, redshirt junior Brittany Boehm provides her first entry to the Spartans' 2009 season blog. A San Ramon native out of California High School, the center back is a liberal studies major who plans to teach following graduation. The president of the Spartan Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) for 2009-10, Brittany has appeared 41 times in a San Jose State uniform, with 12 starts.
San Jose State takes off for the East Coast bright and early on Thursday, September 10, to take on Lafayette College in Easton, Pa., on Friday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. Eastern, and Howard University in the nation's capital two days later. The team returns to Spartan Stadium next Friday night, September 18, against UC Davis. Kick-off is at 7:00 p.m. Individual game tickets for Spartan Soccer are $5.00 for adults, $3.00 for youth aged 12 and under, and $1.00 for youth in soccer jerseys. San Jose State students can attend free of charge with a valid Tower ID card. Groups of 20 or more receive a discounted rate. Gates open one hour prior to the start of a match.
Blog Entry #3 (Wednesday, September 9)
Off to D.C.
Hi Spartan fans! My name is Brittany Boehm, and I am a redshirt junior here at San Jose State University. So far, we have gotten off to a rough start, but it's only four games into the new season, and the team is really starting to gel. This past weekend, we had two games in San Francisco. Both were solid games, but the end result wasn't what we expect as Spartans. With a long season ahead of us still, we are staying positive about what this team can do, and are anxious to prove it every time we hit the field!
Coming up this weekend, the team and I are heading on the road as we go cross country to Washington, D.C. We hope to go over there, lock up a couple of wins, and maybe even run into some B.O. along the way. No, I don't mean body odor when I say B.O. I'm talking about President Barack Obama, of course! Wish us good luck, and please continue the amazing support. We all really appreciate it!
