Goodrich Visits Local Elementary Students

Jan. 10, 2012

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas women’s basketball guard Angel Goodrich was the guest of honor Tuesday morning when the point guard was greeted with smiles and enthusiasm from students at Pinckney Elementary School in Lawrence.

Goodrich joined students during lunchtime and soon found herself on the end of a long autograph line. Many of the kids recognized Goodrich from past clinics hosted by the KU women’s basketball team or seeing her play in Allen Fieldhouse and on TV.

Before her visit was over, Goodrich stopped in a few classrooms where she answered questions and also stressed the importance of school. The Oklahoma native was quick to point out that she would not be where she is today, a Division I student-athlete, without hard work in the classroom and doing well in school.
