9. “Secret Weapon”?

There is no doubt that the faculty team last year left many students surprised, startled, and suspicious as to whether they really won. With pressure to win again, will their “secret weapon” be the key to the team’s back to back championship or rather just a ploy to psych out their competitors? Find out what happens on March 22!

8. Music

Last year's Sport Management class put together the first Orange Invitational in attempt to earn $5,000  for a new speaker system in the gym - and they succeeded.  Come listen to it for yourself!
