Players to also participate in YMCA event on Saturday, April 16

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. - Members of the Tennessee Tech women's basketball team dropped by Prescott Elementary School Tuesday during the lunch hour to meet with several honor students and help recognize them for their classroom success. The Golden Eagles had a chance to chat with some of their youngest fans in the Cookeville area.

Their appearance at the Cookeville school was the latest in the team's participation in a variety of community service projects and outreach as part of the Athletics Department's commitment to the NCAA CHAMPS/Life Skills program. All of Tech's teams participate through a broad range of community activities such as working with Habitat for Humanity and other volunteer organizations.

The Golden Eagle women's basketball team recently completed its most successful season in several years, posting a 23-8 overall record and capturing the Ohio Valley Conference regular season championship.

Coming up in a couple weeks, the Golden Eagles will be at the Putnam County YMCA Healthy Kids Day on Saturday, April 16. Members of the squad will be on hand from 10 a.m. to noon at the event to be held on the Main Quad of the TTU campus. Filled with fun, engaging and creative activities that foster healthy living, the event will part of the YMCA's focus and nationwide efforts to help more kids and families become physically active and stay healthy.
