Other highlights included members of Wesleyan Orchestra performing while members of the Wesleyan women's basketball team also took part in the festivities by mentoring and talking to the children. The hoops player handed out goodie bags to the children. Those present from the basketball team were (along back row from middle across to the right) Kendra Harris '13, Erin Gold '11, Sam LaCroce '12, Melanie Ferdinand '12, McKinley Tennant '11, Allie Southam '11 and Leigh Stewart '13. The community children were so thrilled to have college students to look up to.
Wesleyan, which fielded a women's basketball team devoid of seniors during its 8-15, 2009-10 campaign, faced one of the most difficult schedules in the country. Of the Cardinals' 15 defeats, 11 came against a group of eight teams that qualified for the NCAA Division III tournament. Seven of those eight squads advanced past the first round of the NCAAs.
