The UWG athletic department will kick off a new athletic year with Run with the Wolves, a meet-and-greet event for all Wolves' fans, on Aug. 27 from 10 a.m. - noon.
Run with the Wolves started last year as a kickoff to the athletic year and had a strong turnout at the stadium. This year's event will return to the West Concourse at University Stadium and affords UWG supporters of all ages a chance to mingle and meet all of the athletic teams for the coming season. Fans will also have the opportunity to take tours of the University Stadium Press Box.
"This is a fantastic event for the athletic department and the surrounding community," said Athletic Director Daryl Dickey. "We appreciate all the wonderful support that we have received from the Carrollton community and this is a great way for us to get to know you and vice versa."
The athletic year officially gets under way on Sept. 2, as volleyball competes at noon that day against Arkansas-Monticello in the Christian Brothers season opening tournament. Soccer plays at 4 p.m. that day in Saint Leo, Fla., against Rollins in the Saint Leo tournament and football opens at Tusculum on Sept. 3 at 1 p.m.
