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.
A California bill, signed into law by governor Arnold Schwarzenegger on Sunday, honors the life of Harvey Milk, California’s first openly gay politician elected to public office, by proclaiming his birthday, May 22, as a day of significance across the state each year.
Milk was elected a San Francisco Supervisor in 1977 and served until he and mayor George Moscone were assassinated by Dan White in 1978.
