Thanksgiving Trip to Hawaii
BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - Wednesday may be one of the busiest travel days in the United States, but the University of Mary women’s basketball team beat the rush by leaving early in the week.
The Marauders were not heading home for the holiday. They are spending Thanksgiving in Hawaii. They’ve visited places like Pearl Harbor, and they’ve been to a Luau.
Rick Neumann, U-Mary Head Coach said,” The best part of our luau was some of our girls from Minnesota and Wisconsin they were like, that’s like the Medora Musical only Hawaiian style. I’m like, that’s the beauty of it. It’s just been great. We have a couple of girls that have been here but so many that this is their first time. As a coach you’re all about competition and to line up to see if you’re better than the other team but when you get experiences like this to be with your kids in a different setting and see how appreciative they are of our university and our athletic department of being able to send us to a place like this that really means a lot to me as a coach.”
The Marauders play the University of Tampa on Thanksgiving Day, and they face the host team on Friday in Hilo, on the Big Island.
