For the second-straight year, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Athletics Department hosted the Girls Scouts Sports-A-Thon in Maclellan Gym today. Over 50 girls in grades K-8 from the Girl Scout Council of the Southern Appalachians attended the afternoon event.
The Sports-A-Thon was a day of physical fun on the campus of UTC and gave Scouts an opportunity to be instructed by Mocs coaches and student-athletes. Participants took part in volleyball, soccer, golf, basketball and spirit.
The participants were split into five groups that rotated from sport-to-sport. Each group spent 20 minutes at each station, learning from the Mocs coaches and student-athletes.
Following the Sports-A-Thon the Scouts attended the Lady Mocs' game against the College of Charleston in McKenzie Arena. Chattanooga improved to 2-0 on game played following the Girl Scouts Sports-A-Thon, topping the Cougars 57-31.
