"Ive been very fortunate to be in a job where I loved running practices, the individual sessions with players, seeing them grow from freshmen to seniors and now they are doctors and successful in business. I loved that and I love being part of their lives.Savoy is 61 and started at Dal in 1977 after seven years at St. FX, so by our math, she would have been a head coach at age 22. It's really hard to get wrapped around that, knowing what we were like at age 22.
"As a coach, you have those fond memories. Not just who they are as players but who they are as people. And some of them are still good friends of mine to this day and they are in their 50s."
