Pepsi Day, Breast Cancer Awareness Day Set for Feb. 11

SELINSGROVE, Pa. - The Susquehanna University Athletic Department has announced "Orange Crush"/Pepsi Day 2012 and its Breast Cancer Awareness game will take place Saturday, Feb. 11 in conjunction with a home men's and women's Landmark Conference doubleheader. Both teams will take on Catholic with the women's game set to start at 2 p.m., followed by the men's game at approximately 4 p.m.

As usual, admission for adults is $5, while admission for students is $2. Susquehanna students, faculty and staff (with proper ID) and children ages five and younger are admitted free of charge. Free Pepsi beverages and hot dogs are available for all fans at the games. Weis Markets is providing the hot dogs and buns.

Additionally, all fans are encouraged to wear orange clothing in support of an "Orange Crush" of Catholic. In a partnership with that, The Pepsi Beverages Company of Selinsgrove, Pa., and Susquehanna cheerleaders will be handing out free tee shirts and other prizes.

At halftime of the men's game, preliminary Pepsi winners from earlier in the season will compete for a grand prize during a three-point shootout. The contest invites back a number of first-round winners to compete for the grand prize, which is an ipad2.

Saturday is also Play 4 Kay day, in support of breast cancer awareness. Play 4 Kay is the name adopted by the WBCA for breast cancer awareness games through their organization. It is named after the late Kay Yow. The Crusaders will be collecting donations throughout the day to support the fight against breast cancer. In addition, a limited number of pink t-shirts will be distributed.

Susquehanna's game is also being played in honor of Connie Harnum, SU's former field hockey and tennis coach, and SU Sports Hall of Fame member, who passed away one year ago. Donations will be collected throughout the day and all proceeds will go to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.
