Someone like U

Making the trip to Tampa was Union’s pep band. The Alumni Council, Student Forum and the President’s Office all chipped in to help seven students get to Tampa. Athletics provided them with game tickets. The band - Jake LaRocca ‘12, Vaishali Parkash ‘14, Jeremy Smith ‘14, Arianna Groveman ‘12, Philip Kretschmer ‘15, Katie Jordan ‘12 and Andrew Persson ‘12 - were set to perform the National Anthem. An hour before the game, they were camped out in front of the Fan Fest stage singing along with the music blaring from the speakers: Adele’s smash hit “Someone like you.” Perfect.

Chairman of the Board of Trustees Mark Walsh led Union fans in a cheer at a pregame pep rally at the center stage at Fan Fest. Borrowing a line from Coach Rick Bennett, Walsh asked the crowd over and over, “Why not Union?” Union’s mascot, Dutch, also fired up the crowd.
