    (8.) Molly Goodenbour hired as the head coach at Cal State Dominguez Hills. The Toros were 3-26 last season. Their previous coach, Van Girard, coached the Toros for 24 years, and retired with a losing record. Molly was on the Monarchs' roster years ago but didn't play a regular-season game. She was on Stanford's 1992 NCAA Championship team and also played for the San Jose Lasers in the ABL.

    (9.) Heidi Vanderveer, Tara's kid sister, is now the head coach at U.C. San Diego! She was previously the coach at Occidental College (Division III) in Los Angeles. And, of course, she was on the Monarchs' coaching staff in the early years.

    Congratulations to former Monarch Rebekkah Brunson, who now holds the record for most championships won by any player with five, breaking the six-way tie she previously held for first place with Cynthia Cooper, Sheryl Swoopes, Tina Thompson, Janeth Arcain and Tiffany Jackson of the Houston Comets dynasty.

    I just wish that Brunson's success didn't have to be with the Lynx; damn them! :mad:
    Warhawk and VF21 like this.

    I still hate the Lynx, but I've got to appreciate this level of shade:
