Women’s Basketball Team to Host Local Schools

OGDEN, Utah – The Weber State University women’s basketball team will host 13 area elementary and middle schools for its Nov. 19 game versus Southern Utah at the Dee Events Center.

More than four thousand students are expected to attend from schools in Davis and Weber counties.

Each student will receive a packet of educational information that includes math problems associated with the game itself, puzzles, information on eating healthy and fun facts about WSU.

In addition to the packet, each student will receive family coupons for games and a VIP pass so they can come to any women’s home basketball game this season with a paying adult.

“It’s two-fold for us,” said assistant head coach Rachelle Gardner-Sayers. “We get to provide a service to the community kids who may never have otherwise come to Weber State, and we also get to have them come and experience a women’s basketball game.”

In addition to the students, basketball icon Frank Layden and mascots from local athletic teams also are expected to attend.

For each school that participates, the women’s basketball team has committed to make a visit to that institution and hold a basketball clinic, or another activity of their choice.
