On Thursday, October 23, join the WVU Tech Sports Studies Club as they bring together players, coaches and fans for “Tech Madness,” the 2014 Winter Sports Kickoff in the Neal D. Baisi Athletic Center.
The kickoff will feature WVU Tech’s men’s and women’s basketball programs, introduce new WVU Tech coaches, honor the men’s soccer team for their 2013 USCAA National Championship victory, recognize distinguished wrestlers and the women’s soccer team, and honor Bob Williams, WVU Tech men’s basketball Head Coach.
“This event is a great way to promote awareness of our athletic activities and events,” said Sports Studies Club faculty advisor, Dr. Rachael Alley. “This is a big event for the club, and a great opportunity for students and the community to come out and show their support.”
Attendees will also watch a men’s basketball dunk contest featuring guest judges from WVU Tech, and fans will be able to compete in half-court and three-point shot contests, participate in a relay race and sign up for chances to win WVU Tech gear. Guests wearing pink will be entered for a chance to win a Nike Elite backpack.
“It’s going to be a fun, light evening for students to spend time with our athletes and one another,” said Aquila Fox, WVU Tech Sports Studies Club President. “Our athletes work so hard to compete at their best level and it means the world when they receive support from the WVU Tech community.”
Doors open at 8 p.m. and the Kickoff is open to students, faculty, staff and the general public.
Students interested in getting involved with the WVU Tech Sports Studies Club, which allows members to network within their industry and participate in a variety of events throughout the year, can contact Fox for more information.
