SAAC Hosts Fourth Annual Showdown
MONTEVALLO, Ala. – The University of
Montevallo Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) hosted the
‘SAAC Showdown’ in aid of the Make-A-Wish-Foundation.
All proceeds went towards the Make-A-Wish-Foundation which works to
enrich the lives of children with life-threatening medical
conditions through its wish-granting work.
The event was headed by SAAC President Ruwaldt Viljoen and advised by Associate Athletic Trainer Jennifer Kramer and Senior Woman Administrator Dawn Makofski. The ‘SAAC Showdown’ consisted of 10 teams of six players participating in five challenges including water balloon tossing, egg tossing, hidden washer relay, missing shoe relay and a water bucket relay in which the students completed three dizzy bats spins then raced down the field with a gallon jug containing holes, with the aim to bring as much water back to their bucket.
The winners on the day were from the baseball team followed in second by the women’s basketball team.
The event raised just over $300 which brings the SAAC’s total to over $2000 for the year for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
