We are glad to announce that Katrina "Bisquit" Logan will be coming back to serve another term as head coach for Fall 2016. This will be her second WPL season coaching the All Blues after leading the team to a second place finish at Nationals last year. At the kickoff meeting early in the season, Logan said that her overall goal this season is for players "to enjoy the journey of the season, not just necessarily the outcome." Nevertheless, she has three requirements for her players: to compete, to learn, and to play and have fun. She stressed the importance of competition during practices, with players "driving each other to get better."
Logan has 17 years of combined playing and coaching experience. She started out by playing for Stanford University Women's Rugby, where she represented both the U-23 Pacific Coast Grizzlies and the U-23 National Team. After graduation she played for several bay area teams including the Berkeley All Blues in 2009 and 2013, as well as the Pacific Coast Grizzlies Senior 15s and 7s select sides. In 2008, she joined the staff at her alma mater as assistant coach for the women's rugby team. She is currently in her 8th year there, with her specialty being on the forwards. When not on the pitch, Logan serves as an attorney in a nonprofit organization in East Palo Alto.
We are glad to have her back on board! The All Blues will kick off the WPL season with an away match vs. the Oregon Sports Union in Portland, Oregon on September 10th. The first home game will be against the San Diego Surfers a week later, on September 17th, at St. Mary's College in Moraga.
