You are Ann Elliott and you are far removed from your day job as an assistant coach of the women's lacrosse team at Northwestern University. You are instead on a tour of the Bwindi Impenetrable Rain Forest in Southwest Uganda in East Africa, where you are now marveling at the dexterity of your ancient guide. His name is James and he's a Batwa pygmy and even though you have heard he is 78-years old, he is now flitting like a mythical faun through the dense foliage of this place...
Congratulations are in order for two Northwestern head coaches, Kelly Amonte Hiller of women's lacrosse and Stephanie Foster of women's soccer. Foster and Amonte Hiller coach their teams from the same sideline at Lakeside Field -- with the former patrolling the field in the fall, the latter in the spring -- and are veritable next-door neighbors in their offices at Patten Gymnasium, but as of Monday there is a new bond that links the two coaches.
Kelly and Stephanie each gave birth to baby girls on Monday, July 11, the second daughter for each of them.
The newest addition to the Amonte Hiller family is Lew Hughes Hiller, checking in at six pounds, 11 ounces. Look for her to join big sister Harlee as a mainstay in the stands at Lakeside Field when the six-time national champion women's lacrosse program takes to the turf next spring.
Stephanie welcomed Etta Mae Foster into the world at exactly eight pounds, adding to a family that includes children Charles and Xiah. Etta Mae was just one day late for being able to enjoy the thrilling win by the United States over Brazil in the Women's World Cup -- an exciting two days for the Foster family, to be sure!
Congratulations once again to Kelly, Stephanie and their families and we look forward to seeing the whole crew at Lakeside Field when the seasons roll around!
