Georgetown College senior point guard Katie Filiatreau, left, recently enlisted the help of teammate Ausha Weathers, a sophomore from Scott County, and Chamber of Commerce president Christie Hockensmith to promote this weekendâ€™s American Red Cross Blood Drive â€“ a Beat Those Other Tigers competition.
Mid-South Conference rival Campbellsville University is holding its own drive in conjunction with Saturdayâ€™s games here (women at 2 p.m., men at 4 p.m.)
All Georgetown fans are encouraged to give blood Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Collegeâ€™s Student Center Hall of Fame Room, or Saturday from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Walk-ins will be accepted, but call Sports Information Director Resa Browning for (preferred) appointments at 863-7972.
Katie, who had a very selective internship at International Red Cross headquarters in Washington D.C. last summer, said the â€świnning driveâ€ť should be revealed at halftime of the menâ€™s game. The Hockensmith Insurance Agency sponsors the Student Athlete of the Week feature in the Georgetown News-Graphic.
