The softball team hosted its first Canadian Thanksgiving Monday night in support of its two Canadian players, first-year outfielder Caley Dunlop and senior first baseman Kat Ladouceur. Coaches Sara Schoenhoft and Sally Snover bought turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans, mac and cheese, and pies for the players and began the dinner with a toast. Ladouceur, who is from Nova Scotia, said she was touched by the gesture.

“I don’t get to go home much throughout the school year, so it was really wonderful to take a piece of my home life and celebrate it with my second family,” she said. “I am so grateful to have every single one of these strong, intelligent, beautiful women as part of my home away from home.”
