The Colorado Buffaloes won their first home game since the tragic death of Julia Sarcona, as Evan Kruegel of Fox 31 in Denver reports:

“It’s definitely a day that I’ll always remember,” coach Ann Elliot said. “It’s a tough day. You have a player call you, and tell you what happened to their friend, it’s hard.”

“It’s been a tough month, one that’s been up and down,” senior Blair Sisk said.

Sisk scored the team’s first goal, celebrating with her teammates near a large “JS” logo painted on the field.

“When I look down it makes my heart a little warm,” Sisk said. “It’s a good thing that it’s on our field, because you know that that emotion, you can harness it.”
