University of Tulsa student-athletes spent the past week working with Day Spring Community Services, an organization that serves at-risk children. Members of the TU football, men’s and women’s soccer, and men’s and women’s basketball teams each spent a morning working with the kids. Players and coaches led the children through drills and games, gave tours of the facilities, and emphasized the importance of teamwork, making good grades, listening and staying active.
Day Spring Community Services is an organization that partners with Tulsa Public Schools every summer, serving at-risk children who are in need of a positive, productive and nurturing outlet during the summer months. The annual relationship with Golden Hurricane Athletics is part of the “Teamwork Week” for the Day Spring summer program. Kids come to the Tulsa campus each morning and get to meet, play and interact with Tulsa athletes and coaches.
“It was fun getting to interact with all the kids,” senior women’s basketball player Kelsee Grovey said. “Seeing how it brightened their day to interact with us also brightened our day. It’s a great program that helps kids and to be part of that is a great feeling.”
Tulsa Golden Hurricane football season tickets are on sale now, and start as low as $78 per person. The season starts on September 5th against FAU at 2:30 p.m. in H.A. Chapman Stadium. New head coach Philip Montgomery brings his new explosive offense to The University of Tulsa.
