Second-Annual Mr. SU a Success

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Susquehanna’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) hosted its second-annual Mr. SU Contest on March 22 and the event was a rousing success, as SAAC raised $500 for the Special Olympics, the Landmark Conference’s charity of choice.

Nine male student-athletes from a variety of sports competed in three different events: talent, school spirit, formal wear/pickup line. After the judges deliberated, the top five finalists were chosen. The finalists then answered a randomly selected question before the winner was announced.

Senior Bobby Eppleman, a multi-sport athlete, won the overall Mr. SU title. Other winners included baseball teammates Calvin Hug and Matt Lottes (talent), who performed an Irish dance complete with costume; B.J. Merriam (school spirit) and Logan Skillman (formal wear/pick-up line).
