Your Lions Need YOU!!
When our five spring sports (Softball, Women’s Golf, Women’s Outdoor Track and Field, Men’s Golf, and Men’s Outdoor Track and Field) had their seasons abruptly halted due to COVID-19, it left a truly painful mark on the hearts on our senior classes in those five programs.
Thankfully, the NCAA announced on March 13 Season of Competition Waivers for seniors in those spring sports, providing they maintain academic eligibility and continue to pursue either their undergraduate or masters’ degree. However, in this challenging economic time, the Association did not provide additional funding for the returning seniors.
Last week we launched the Lion Unfinished Business Campaign setting a goal of raising $55,000 by May 31 to ensure these student-athletes can return for their senior seasons. No matter what size of gift you choose to make. EVERY GIFT HELPS!
We have been most inspired by two (2) 25 year old former softball student-athletes who made their very first gifts for $250 each. Both were seniors when our current seniors, whose season was affected by this virus, were only Freshman!
We hope you will accept the challenge and support our student-athletes with a gift!
