Central America Recap: Days 4-7
Aug. 17, 2007
Hola otra vez Horned Frog Fans!
The TCU Horned Frogs are back in San Jose, Costa Rica, after spending four days on the beautiful, remote island of San Andres. During their time on San Andres, the Horned Frogs played three games, winning twice. The Horned Frogs were honored to become the first American team ever to play in the country of Colombia.
The San Andres Soles professional team, which TCU played twice, showed the Horned Frogs the island's world-class hospitality. On their final night, the team hosted a dinner reception for TCU and told the Horned Frogs that they hope to see them again soon. After all, Soles Coach Roldofo Fonseca said, the series is tied one game apiece and the tie must be broken.
Earlier that day, TCU's first without a game since arriving in Central America on Friday night, the Horned Frog entourage toured the island in an open-air bus. The highlight of the excursion was a stop at a 12-foot-high coral cliff, where many members of the travel part dove, jumped or bellyflopped into the sea.
On Tuesday, TCU players and coaches had free time for much of the day. Player activities ranged from snorkeling and kayaking to hanging outside at the pool. Meanwhile, the TCU assistant coaches cruised around the island on mopeds.
TCU will round out its trip with games on Thursday and Friday night before returning to Fort Worth on Sunday afternoon. Check back on gofrogs.com to see what happens on the remainder of the trip.
