MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Members of the sports marketing class at Georgia College are set to hold a canned food drive at Bobcat Field Wednesday, Oct. 3 as GC Soccer takes on Young Harris College at 6 p.m.
All donations will be given to the local Habitat for Humanity. Each canned item turned in Wednesday will earn the donator a raffle ticket, with a number prizes given out at halftime.
The Bobcats will welcome Young Harris to Bobcat Field, the first time the two teams have met since the Mountain Lions joined the Peach Belt Conference (PBC) over the summer.
Both teams are jockeying for position in the PBC standings, each looking for their second conference win.
The Georgia College Department of Athletics, two-time winners of the PBC Commissioner's Cup, sponsors 11 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.
