Student-Athletes Making a Mark, On and Off the Field

I had lunch today with a stellar group of Wesleyan student-athletes along with Assistant Football Coach Sean Stanley. The Student-Athlete of Color Leadership Council is providing mentorship opportunities, creating community engagement activities, and helping to recruit more diverse athletics teams. Next week, for example, they are hosting student-athletes from Bulkeley High School in Hartford, and recently they staged a basketball tournament that raised thousands of dollars for the Middlesex Hospital Comprehensive Breast Center. I look forward to working together on new initiatives next year. 

Have you heard about Vicious Circles? This is Wesleyan’s high-soaring women’s frisbee team, set to go to the National Championship tournament for the third year in a row!

Having won the Regionals, the team is heading to the championship tournament in Illinois. They have established a fundraising page here.
