LARAMIE, Wyo. -
The University of Wyoming Athletics Department wrapped up their ninth annual Sports Festivals this past weekend in Gillette, Wyo.
UW coaches and staff traveled across the state with their student-athletes to promote different sports within Wyoming communities. The festivals began May 9 in Star Valley and ended May 20 in Gillette. A total of 4,715 kids attended the events to learn more about sports they are interested in.
"I feel the UW Sports Festivals give not only the student athletes and coaches a great opportunity, but the communities a chance to interact with the players," head women's basketball coach Joe Legerski said. "It's a great way to promote our sports within the athletics department."
The University of Wyoming would like to thank these state wide sponsors for their support: Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Bank of the West, Village Inn, The Brown and Gold Outlet, and Enterprise.
