Hail to the Champions

Friday, April 5, 2013

Dozens of Greencastle and DePauw University community members came out Thursday evening to honor the 2013 NCAA Division III women's basketball champion DePauw Tigers at a public celebration at Eli's Books/Starbucks. One of the highlights of the evening was a presentation by Mark Doud (above, right) of Congressman Todd Rokita's office. The congressman had the unbeaten and record-setting achievements of the 34-0 DePauw women read into The Congressional Record and had his community liaison present a framed copy to coach Kris Huffman. Meanwhile, DePauw junior Alex Gasaway autographs a basketball for Greencastle resident Ginger Scott as the Tiger mascot tries to sneak in line. And proving the spoils of victory -- namely the national championship trophy -- can be quite huggable is easy for Tiger sophomore Lauren Abendroth. [Order this photo]
