INDIANAPOLIS- Members of the Greyhound men’s and women’s track and field, and the men’s and women’s tennis teams spent their Saturday morning volunteering at the first annual Hound Hustle 5K as a part of UIndy Homecoming 2014.
The track and field team participated in support of Kathy Stickney, a chemistry professor who helped organize the event, as a way to give back to her for her support of the Greyhound Track and Field program. All of the Greyhound student-athletes assisted with directing runners, as well as passing out water and bandanas to the participants. The UIndy student-athletes also encouraged the runners along the course.
“It was cool to see people of all ages come together and run the race,” Austin Aten of UIndy Men’s Tennis said. “We are glad they got to see the campus and the surrounding UIndy community.”
The UIndy tracksters open their season Dec. 6 in the ARC, hosting the Gerry England Alumni Open, while UIndy Tennis has closed out its fall season and looks forward to opening its spring season in early February.
