After a week of beautiful, sunny weather, Mother Nature pulled a
switch on the Bay Area and turned us into something more resembling
the British Isles than “sunny California.” As a result, scheduled
tennis matches were delayed, postponed or cancelled. And since
tennis is currently the only active sport for Mills, the lack of
activity left us with a lack of standout athletes.
Have no fear, faithful readers, tennis matches will soon be
played, and the crew team is priming themselves for the start of
the spring season (see Laura K. Cucullu’s article in this issue).
The next issue of The Weekly will highlight senior Cyclone
swimmers, as well as the women selected by the Athletic Department
as Cyclones of the Week (weather, of course, permitting).
In the meantime, check out these upcoming events in the
Recreation Department (information taken directly from the Spring
