What's it like to be a Blugold?

What does it take to be a member of the UWEC Blugold Fastpitch team?  Here's a few points that make us the team we are
  • Blugolds persevere through ups and downs.
  • Blugolds are enthusiastic and eager to lace up their cleats.
  • Blugolds stomp it out, to a comfortable tempo, to set the mood of the game.
  • Blugolds cheer for their teammates, preferably from the diaphragm. 
  • Blugolds huddle and sway in call and response chanting, "GAME TIME."
  • Blugolds do their best to have patience with Wisconsin winters...even if it continues into late April.
  • Blugolds value the Blugolds of the past and the emblem on their uniforms.
  • Blugolds balance softball and studies to maintain sanity.
  • Blugolds support one another, on and off the diamond.
  • Blugolds laugh at the fear of grass stains, dirty uniforms, or nasty raspberries.
  • Blugolds strive to take advantage of each opportunity.
  • Blugolds devour Noni chews, Red Vines, and Swedish Fish.
  • Blugolds take care of "bid-ness."
  • Blugolds depend on each other, but are responsible for themselves.
  • Blugolds jump into a cold pool together at 6 am and sprint 16 lines in 60 seconds.
  • Blugolds expect excellence.
  • Blugolds appreciate the privilege to play.
  • Blugolds live to play the game.
  • Blugolds execute.
  • Blugolds love.

Go ahead and ask a Blugold what it means to them.  Most would say that this is what we are about.  
We are proud to be Blugolds.
