Southern athletics to sponsor 2013 Fall Kickoff

Joplin, Mo. –  Next Sunday, August 25th, the Missouri Southern athletic department will host a fall sports kickoff at Freeman Hospital’s Main Campus.

From 6-7:30 pm, the Lions’ football, volleyball, soccer, & cross country teams, along with the Southern cheerleaders and band will be on hand as part of the fun. Bring the kids for refreshments, games, and have fun with Roary.
The teams will be signing autographs and taking pictures with the kids and anyone that shows up. Coaches will address the crowd about their upcoming seasons and we will have pocket schedules and posters available. The band and cheerleaders will perform and there will be games for kids to play.
Lionbackers will also have the chance to pick up their apparel there, prior to the start of the season. A special thanks goes out to Freeman for helping to sponsor this great activity to help kick off our fall sports.
