Coach Gets Trapped in Women's Washroom

Lynx Pitching Coach, Jan Sauvé-Frankel, Provides Some Tournament Levity

Jan Trapped in washroom Jan coming out of the washroom Jan tips his cap to crowd

According to head coach Carey Ashton the team worked out with Orleans, ON this afternoon and the team looked pretty good. He's seen most of the competition and feels the Lynx could do well, but stressed like most competitive teams, it'll come down to the pitching.

On a lighter note, after the team's practice at the tournament site, Lynx pitching coach Jan Sauvé-Frankel needing to find a place to relieve himself, found the men's washroom closed. He then decided to use the women's facilities and in doing do created quite a stir. What occurred was that Jan found himself trapped in the women's washroom for over half-an-hour. Carey said some of the Lynx players would check and see how Jan was doing during the whole ordeal receiving some not so pleasant responses. According to Carey, it was dam funny.

You can always count on Jan to find a way to keep the kids loose. Way to go Jan!
