The signed ACC Champions backboard sign was a particularly popular item and went for a hefty sum.
As did every signed photo of Marissa and Kristi.
Marissa and Kristi were both mobbed from the moment they stepped into the room. Each graciously signed autographs and posed for photos.
ACC Rookie of the Year Lynetta Kizer also posed (graciously) at her first team banquet.
Emery Wallace, Yemi Oyefuwa, and Jackie Nared . . . all looking very stylish!
The tradition continues.... Rebounder Daphne has Kristi sign the WNBA ball signed two years ago by Shay Doron and last year by Crystal Langhorne and Laura Harper.
Then it was Marissa's turn to sign....
With 437 fans in attendance, the Riggs Alumni Hall was completely packed. In fact, the team decided to forgo the usual head table this year to make room for about six additional tables of fans. And the individual tables were increased from seating 8 to seating 10 to accommodate all the fans who wanted to attend.
Coach B surprised outgoing Rebounders President Obie O'Brien and his wife, Marilyn (who preceded Obie as President), by honoring them for their many years of service to the Rebounders and to the team. This was a well deserved recognition for two really terrific people!
Coach B presented the shortest dress award (previously held by Marissa Coleman) to Jackie Nared, and correctly guessed that Jackie's parents were not in attendance!
Kristi was the first of the seniors to deliver her farewell remarks. They were warm, funny, and clearly heartfelt.
