On Jan. 14, students from local North Philadelphia schools came together to celebrate with Temple women's basketball Head Coach Tonya Cardoza and the Temple Owls as they prepared to face Southern Methodist University. Promoting the theme “Shooting for Success,” Cardoza stressed the importance of teamwork, communication and leadership as she spoke to the kids.
“In order to be a good team, we have to work together,” Cardoza said. “Whatever you have to do, whether it’s a school project or whatever, and you have other people who you have to work with, make sure that you do things together.”
Hooter and Stella also joined the festivities and helped the students cheer on the Owls during the game—which they won!
