WHATS HAPPENING ON CAMPUS
CIF Champions for Character
The athletic department would like to congratulate Mike Gerakos for receiving the CIF Champions for Character award. We received word from the CIF office yesterday about this award. This could not go to a more deserving person. Mr. Gerakos is our activities director and has coached Baseball for years here at UNI. Coach Gerakos was given the award for exemplifying the very finest in sportsmanship, character, integrity and athletics. Coach Gerakos selection was made from thousands of possible recipients in the CIF southern section, so this is truly a great honor. We in the athletic department could not think of a more deserving person. Congratulations Coach G and thanks for everything you do for this school.

Athletic Training Room Fundraiser Update
Last night we completely filled Mendocino Farms for their soft opening. We received over $1300 in donations to the Athletic Training Room. Thank you for showing your support of Brittany and our athletic department. We would also like to give a big Thank You to Mendocino Farms for letting us come to this event. Everyone enjoyed their food and the atmosphere of the new place. If you and your family are in need of a place to eat lunch or dinner in the future please keep Mendocino Farms in mind. The more we can support restaurants that support our athletic programs the better. You won’t be disappointed with the food there. It is amazing! Below is a picture from last night of the several Mendocino Farms employees who are current or former UNI students.
If you did not get a chance to attend last night you can still make a donation. We are asking for $10 per athlete to go towards the athletic training fund. Mr. McCaffrey will be visiting each sport during 6th period today and Friday. Show your support of Brittany and make a donation this week.
