Schaefer: Mizzou Women's Club Soccer Team Visits

This week, the Senate Appropriations Committee heard testimony from Department of Public Safety, the Department of Natural Resources, the Department of Agriculture, and the Department of Conservation.

I greatly appreciate the time these departments spend in organizing their testimony and taking the time to meet with our committee. The commitment of these organizations and their members to help their fellow Missourians does not go unnoticed.

I also had the pleasure of introducing the University of Missouri Women’s Club Soccer team on the Senate floor Tuesday morning (2/14). Congratulations to these ladies for their first place finish at the 18th annual NIRSA National Soccer Championships. Melissa Murphy, Nicole Newell, Lauren Stockell, and Alyssa Weatherly were all awarded all-tournament honors and Mariah McClain was named all-tournament goalie at the national tournament. I believe I speak on behalf of all of University of Missouri alumni when I say thank you for representing Mizzou so well on a national level.

Pictured are Lorin Opfer, Captain; Katelyn Fitter; Andrea Boone; Ciara O’Shea; Nicole Newell; Melissa Murphy; Kelsey Whittet; Alyssa Weatherly; Mackenzie King; Stefani Burt; Sarah Sanguinet; Director of Mizzou Rec Services, Diane Dahlmann; Club Sport Coordinator, Melissa Operle; and Assistant Director of Recreation Services, Laura Salerno.

The Mizzou Club Sports Federation is committed to enhancing students’ college experience by giving students the opportunity to participate in numerous club sports and encouraging healthy lifestyles. Their official website can be found here.

The University of Missouri was given the honor of hosting the Missouri Grand Prix last weekend in Columbia at the Mizzou recreational complex. This event brought numerous international Olympic swim teams and Olympic hopefuls for the upcoming summer Olympics to be held in London. The meet held in Columbia was one of seven stops in the U.S. Grand Prix Series for these athletes. Their visit to the University of Missouri campus was met with excitement by many Mizzou students and visitors. The official website for the USA swim team and information concerning the Missouri Grand Prix can be found here.

Thursday morning (2/16), I filed Senate Bill 812, which would establish the Missouri Electronic Prior Authorization Committee. This committee would facilitate and monitor Missouri-based efforts to contribute to the establishment of national electronic prior authorization standards concerning prescription drugs.

Thank you for your continued interest in the issues that affect the citizens of Boone and Randolph counties. If you have any questions or concerns throughout this session, please contact my office.
