Commodore golfers add pink to their color scheme this week

By A. Boggs

The Commodores have donned pink ribbons on their bags this week at the NCAA Championship in honor of LPGA golfer Erica Blasberg, who tragically passed away last week in Las Vegas.  Blasberg played for head coach Greg Allen for two years while Allen was the head coach at the University of Arizona.

Attached is a picture of Brooke Goodwin's bag with the ribbon and "Skip" printed on the ribbon.  Allen tells a story that on Blasberg's arrival to Arizona, a trainer asked her to skip around the track to get warmed up for a workout.  She didn't know how to skip, so the moniker was given to her by Allen and her teammates.

The Commodore family passes on their condolences to the Blasberg and University of Arizona women's golf family, who will celebrate her life Wednesday morning in California at a memorial service.
