RENO, NV – The University of Iowa women’s basketball team celebrated Thanksgiving together with a trip to Lake Tahoe. The Hawkeyes are staying in Reno for the Nugget Classic, but took the short one hour drive to Tahoe for some sightseeing.
After a light morning practice on the campus of the University of Nevada, the Hawkeyes hopped on the team bus and took the scenic drive through the mountains to the Heavenly Ski Resort at Lake Tahoe. The team took a gondola ride to a little over 9,000 feet on the ski resort, and took in some breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe.
“It was amazing,” freshman Jaime Printy said. “The water was crystal clear blue, and the mixture of water and mountains was awesome to see. The team had a great time taking pictures and looking at the sights. Everywhere you looked, it was like a postcard.”
The Hawkeyes returned to the Nugget Hotel for a team banquet, including a Thanksgiving Day buffet.
