Observing a coaching legend rise

LaDoris Cordell, Cardinal fan extraordinaire, spoke of Tara at the Awards Banquet:
"In my past life, I was a state court judge. So when I returned to Stanford seven years ago I received the appropriate amount of adulation due to a retired judge. But that adulation paled when compared to the ooh's and aah's I received when I revealed that I had been invited to travel with the team to Spokane for the Sweet 16 and the Elite 8."
She continued with a moving tribute to Tara, describing how she saw her through many eyes: those of her coaching team, her players, her fans, the media, her sister, her mother, her piano teacher.

You can read her tribute here, in the Palo Alto Weekly.
