Pregnant Zags

As a guy in his mid-twenties, pregnant women scare that crap out of me. However, apparently two assistant coaches for the GU Women's basketball team are expecting. That's got a be a bit distracting right? Nope, they just went 14-0 in conference en route to the regular season championship.

There must be something in the water in the Gonzaga University Athletic Department. Two of the assistant coaches for the GU Women’s Basketball team are pregnant, making for an interesting season on the sidelines. Thursday night, the GU Women won the WCC Conference. When Lisa Mispley Fortier and Jodie Kaczor Berry celebrated the win, they were each celebrating for two. Kaczor Berry is halfway through her pregnancy, with a baby boy due in July. Mispley Fortier is much farther along; her child is due April 1st, two days before the Final Four. “It’s getting a little bit tougher to stand up in practice all day,” Lisa said. “I keep dropping my pen during games and I can’t pick it up!”

On another note, none of the GU women players are pregnant, which probably makes their chances for an NCAA berth much higher.
