Coach Strodtman

From Sunday’s Columbia Daily Tribune:

A COACH IN NEED: Hickman soccer Coach Jon Strodtman’s continuing medical issues took a turn for the worse this week in Houston. Dealing with a rare form of intestinal cancer for the past six years, Strodtman had unsuccessful surgery to relieve pressure in his intestines that had been keeping him from eating.

“It didn’t go well,” said Kay Lindner, a close friend of Strodtman’s and Hickman’s activities secretary. “They opened him up and said, ‘We can’t do anything.’ … He’s out of sick days, and it’s not good.”

Unable to donate their sick days, Lindner and Sue Richardson, who teaches with Strodtman at Jefferson Junior High, have started a collection among their co-workers. Strodtman, who is married with four children, was expected to miss the remainder of the school year recovering from this surgery.

“Hickman and Jeff Junior are raising money … but there’s a lot of former players and people we’re not reaching just through the two schools,” Lindner said.

If you would like to contribute to the Strodtman family fund, donations can be sent to Lindner at Hickman High School, 1104 N. Providence Road, Columbia, MO 65203. Lindner can also be reached at the high school at (573) 214-3007.

Soccer Video

I experimented with Windows Movie Maker this weekend, to see how it compares to my experience with iMovie. Simple but less capable is my early impression. Nonetheless, I hope you’ll enjoy this short video made up of many of the photos I’ve uploaded this season of the high school girls games I’ve covered. A little ode to the girls, set to the music of a CD I find in my player quite a bit these days, Jamie Cullum. Enjoy.

Looks like I need to get out to a Nixa game soon! escort services dubai

MSU Lady Bear Soccer Recruits

Missouri State Soccer Recruits

The Missouri State University’s women’s soccer team and head coach Rob Brewer have received commitments from five high school seniors to play for the Bears in 2006. The new additions are Samantha Aguilar (Shawnee Mission, Kan.), Cara Williams (St. Louis, Mo.), Nicole Logan (Olathe, Kan.), Jessica Smits (Jenks, Okla.), and Lacey Dake (Tulsa, Okla.)

Just as important are a pair of players from Park Hill South who are planning to walk-on next Fall. Pictured above are Katie Mergenhagen, Asst Coach Natalie Morrison and Emily Wright (left to right).

Natalie may look familiar to long time Bears fans. You would remember her as Natalie Whiteman, a member of the Southwest Missouri State squad from Fall 1999-2002 where she played midfield and defense. She’s an Olathe native and played, and started, in three sports in high school. escort reviews dubai
