Bobcat Soccer to “Think Pink” Wednesday

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College & State University soccer team will hold “Think Pink Night” Wednesday, Sept. 22 at 7 p.m. in conjunction with the 2010 Peach Belt Conference (PBC) season opener against Georgia Southwestern State University at Bobcat Field.

Bobcat soccer joins with the semester’s sports marketing class to promote the event, designed to raise both awareness and funds for breast cancer research.

The Bobcat soccer players will wear pink jerseys that night, and related items will be up for auction, raffle and sale. Official “Think Pink” Georgia College Athletics T-Shirts will be available for sale at the university fountain on main campus Thursday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, leading up to the contest. Wear the shirt to the game and you’ll receive a free hot dog from the concession stand.

The Georgia College Department of Athletics, back-to-back winners of the PBC Commissioner's Cup, sponsors 10 varsity athletic programs at the NCAA Division II level. As a Division II program, Bobcat Athletics prides itself on balancing the life of the student-athlete, evidenced by the teams' multiple appearances in post-season competition as well as documented academic success and community-service involvement.
