Whirlwind of activity in athletics!
Greetings Panther Fans! Let me tell you, these past 3 weeks have been a PAWesome experience for me! All of the UNI Athletic teams are coming through and showing the nation who UNI is! This includes wrestling, softball, women’s basketball, and men’s basketball.
I had to opportunity to travel to Arch Madness for the men’s basketball team, and that was such an amazing experience. We knocked off Wichita State in overtime, and then won in a buzzer-beater to Evansville! All of you fans that were at the game and cheering from home, definitely made an impact! Winning the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament gave us a chance to dance in the March Madness Tournament! UNI was represented well in Oklahoma City! Not only did we have our own fans at the game, but we persuaded fans from other teams to join the Panther Bandwagon and cheer on our team!
While our men’s team was having success, the women’s team was as well! I loved going and supporting them through the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament. We have now made it to the Sweet 16 in the Women’s NIT!
The success UNI athletics has had the past 3 weeks has been amazing, and I have loved being a part of it! Keep showing your Panther Pride everywhere you go! I don’t know about you all, but I sure am proud to be a Panther! GO CATS!!!
Valentines Weekend Fun
Happy Valentines all you Panther Fans! I hope you have the most loving day! I want to share with you what I did on Saturday that I love! I got to throw out the first pitch at the UNI softball tournament and I loved it!!! It was so fun! I was a little nervous at first but I overcame it! All the softball girls were great supporters!
