Western looks to support student-athletes through new program
If you want to support Western Oregon University’s student-athletes, now is the time to do it.
June 30, WOU Athletics announced the official launch of the Drive for 325, a program honoring the university’s 325 competitive student-athletes. Drive for 325 was created to increase support and membership through the Wolves Club. By June 30, 2019, the goal is to have 325 donors join the club and raise $325,000 or more. All funds raised will go toward scholarships for student-athletes, enhancing facilities, and encouraging and promoting academic and athletic success.
The Wolves Club has an initiation fee of $25, and members will receive monthly emails, recognition, discounts, tailgating spots, Wolves gear and sideline passes – depending on which level they join. The Wolves Club also looks to strengthen relationships with alumni and community members over the next year. For more information, to donate and to see the progress of the Drive for 325, visit wouwolves.com/drivefor325
Fourth of July Tennis Tournament sees success
Sixty-two people signed up for the annual Fourth of July Tennis Tournament that took place June 30-July 1 at the Western Oregon University and Central High School tennis courts.
The tournament often brings friends from the past back together, said tournament coordinator Patty Youngren. The tournament was separated into divisions, so people of like ability can play together. Many alumni of Central and Dallas came to play, as well as Monmouth and Independence community members. At one point, there was a three-hour match between Jacob Farr and Stan Wilkinson, with Farr losing in a tie-breaker, 5-7, 7-5, and 6-4.
