On Friday night, February 17th, our THREE women’s teams who won their NW Conference Championships last year (Track & Field, Basketball AND GOLF!) were honored at half-time of the Women’s home basketball game!!!!!! Our President, Robin Baker and Athletic Director, Craig Taylor were on hand to introduce each team and present them with their 2011 trophies. Our new banners were already hung up on the wall (so we didn’t get to hold it up high like this year!), but the three banners stood out as they were decorated with pink ribbons in honor of “PinkZone” campaign at George Fox for breast cancer awareness. (Note–you can see our banners in background of main photo on the right!)
Speaking of pink, during the games, our team sold hot pink t-shirts to help raise money for breast cancer!! It was a great cause and a lot of fun! I think our “hot team” in their “hot pink shirts” is what helped keep the sales moving, as we raised over $400!!!! Pretty cool!! Then, during half-time of the men’s game, our senior women athletes were honored (our team helped with the celebration but we don’t have any seniors this year!)!! It was really quite a night for a lot of well-deserving, dedicated and committed George Fox women athletes!!!! Congrats to all!
We were also excited to have two of our great alums back from last year, Mandy Cameron and Sarah Askin, to take part in the festivities!!! Good times! 🙂 We were also very excited to have two of our favorite fans, Bob and Peggy Fowler, also involved in our celebration!!! Thank you Bob & Peggy for all your great ongoing support!!!
