QUOTE OF THE WEEK

"I am a member of a team, and I rely on the team.  I defer to it, and sacrifice for it, because the team, not the individual, is the ultimate champion"  ~ Mia Hamm, U.S. Women's National Soccer Team; 2001 and 2002 FIFA World Player of the Year; National Soccer Hall of Fame inductee.

Have a great week everyone!  Let's go Lancers!
