Monarchs Taking Off

Posted by Casey on May 8, 2007

I went to the open practice for the Sacramento Monarchs on Saturday. Open only to season ticket holders and the media. I went with a group STH’s and, although I got in with my media credentials, I was there just to enjoy watching the team I’m going to cover again this summer.

Ticha Penicheiro and DeMya Walker are still in Russia battling it out in the Russian Championship (Go Spartak!). Rebekkah Brunson is in the Russian consolation round and Nicole Powell is still playing in Spain. Unfortunately, the Russian Championship finished game four today and are tied 2-2. The winner on the 10th takes all. Go Spartak!

We’re just hoping Ticha and DeMya (not to mention Rebekkah and Nicole) will be back in time for the first pre-season game on the 13th. We’re also hoping Diana Taurasi will be with her Phoenix Mercury team for that game. But she’s also playing for Spartak . . . Go Spartak!!
