Athens State Athletic Homecoming to Honor Womens Sport Programs

June 21, 2013

ATHENS, Ala. - Athens State University will host the 2nd Athletic Homecoming Reception honoring former sports programs at Athens College, Athens State College, and Athens State University. Coaches Larry Keenum (softball), Dr. Betty Jo Fuller (tennis, volleyball, golf), Dr. Al Long (tennis, gymnastics) and Tena Bullington (cheerleading) will be on hand as we highlight the women’s sports programs. All former athletes, boosters, volunteers and family members are invited to attend. The reception will be July 27 at 4:00 p.m. in Carter Gymnasium. Contact the Office of Alumni Affairs at (256)233-8185 or by email for additional information.

“The 2012 Athletic Homecoming exceeded our expectations with over 150 attendees,” states Director of Alumni Affairs Trish Di Lullo. “Coaches Oba Belcher and Harold Murrell were posthumously honored for their years of service to the University last year and the focus was on the men’s sports programs. This year we will focus on the women’s sports programs and the impact they made on the college.”

The Sports Museum will be open during the reception and houses items from every era and sports program. Volunteers work every Tuesday morning to collect, inventory and identify memorabilia items for display. Some of the items are on loan while others were donated. Anyone with items from the former sports programs at Athens College, Athens State College, or Athens State University are encouraged to contact Sara Love at (256)216-6671 or by email to discuss displaying them in the museum.
