MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga.  – The Georgia College softball program and head coach Jamie Grodecki are pleased to announce that Saturday, Oct. 22 will be the University’s annual Alumni Game.

“GC softball has an outstanding tradition and it's important that the former players who have made this program so successful know that it will always be their program,” said coach Grodecki. “We're one big family and this will be a great event for all of our alumni who can attend.”

The alumni game is set to start at noon with a cookout to follow. The game will feature current Bobcat athletes facing off against Bobcat and Colonial Alumni. This is also the same day as Milledgeville’s Deep Roots Festival as well as family day on the GC campus.
