After securing a solid victory in Tempe, Arizona, this past weekend, the Fog Women finished fifth overall in West Coast Division I. The Fog beat Tempe 35-24 to edge out the same team in the final rankings, only narrowly missing the D1 playoffs. The club at large is proud of such a strong showing for the women in only their fourth season as a team.
The Fog Women will continue to play on into the post-season with tournaments and scrimmages.

Milk was elected a San Francisco Supervisor in 1977 and served until he and mayor George Moscone were assassinated by Dan White in 1978.
