Awesome pics!

‘Twas the night before SPUD league and all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse.

The WATER bottles were filled and RACKETS by the door, in hopes that 9:00am soon would be there.

The athletes were nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of tennis balls danced in their heads.

Who can create the next line?

We can’t wait to see everyone tomorrow morning at Wesleyan!
