Scouts, Military honored guests at Thursday doubleheader against EKU

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee Tech's doubleheader against Eastern Kentucky Thursday night has grown in importance, with both Golden Eagle teams seeking crucial victories. It's a perfect night to call on military and area scouts to help back Tech.

Free admission is being offered to both groups as Tech hosts Military Appreciation Night and Scout Night.

For Scout Night, all youth who are involved in scouting on all levels will be admitted to the game free when they are wearing their scouting uniform or present a scouting ID. In addition to their free admission, all scouts can purchase tickets for their family members for just one dollar each. Tickets may be purchased in advance or at the game.

Military and Public Safety Appreciation Night is being held in recognition of the men and women who give the gift of Freedom to all Americans and keep us safe every day. Tech invites all military personnel, both active and retired, as well as persons working in law enforcement, emergency and first responder fields, to be guests at the game along with their immediate family members. The offer is available by showing proper identification, and tickets can be obtained either in advance or at the game.

The women's game tips off at 5:30 p.m. with the men's game to follow at 7:30 p.m.
