Hey guys, first post. Wrote a profile for our local news website in Seattle about former women's soccer player Nanda McCormick (now Sturm) and thought you Zags fans would be interested!


“Red-shirting in basketball was tough my first year at Gonzaga and I was really missing playing soccer,” said Sturm. “I was not happy playing basketball and I decided to take a risk and try-out for the soccer team. Through a lot of hard work I made the team in 2004 and earned a scholarship. I had the best experience of my life playing soccer. It was just a “meant to be” moment.”

Nanda was a fave of mine. A good athlete. Few folks know she is half Fijian, her grandmother lives in Fiji, and her full name is Nandini (pron: Nun-dee-nuh), which I think is a pretty name. Thanks for doing this article.
