Coe Reports on Early-Year SAAC Activities

This from Kelsey Jipp, Coe women's basketball student-athlete and SAAC rep:

-Our 'Blackout' events have become 'Whiteout' events this year.  We sold Whiteout/Bleed Crimson Win Gold t-shirts the beginning of the year and have so far had Whiteouts at volleyball, cross country, women's tennis and tomorrow is men's and women's soccer.  We have done contests at each event...I have a video that I will hopefully send you soon of our musical chairs contest at the volleyball whiteout.
-Our Dig Pink event was for breast cancer awareness at a volleyball game.  The volleyball team put a lot into this event and we simply helped out.  We sold Dig Pink t-shirts, gave out cotton candy and did breast cancer trivia with fans in between games so they could win prizes.
-We had athletes attend a local elementary event called the Arthur Elementary Walk-a-thon where athletes encouraged students and signed t-shirts
-We held a Faculty/Staff appreciation day last Saturday at our home football game. Faculty/staff were recognized at halftime, given free food and we raffled off a Spirit Bucket full of Coe gear.  We had about 20 faculty recognized that day, many of whom had never been to a Coe football game before.

I have attached a pic of our football Whiteout from last Saturday.  The halftime contest was Punk, Pass & Kick.
