Posted Aug 25, 2008

ATHENS - Designed to provide University students an evening of competition and fun in a non-alcohol environment, Georgia head football coach Mark Richt has organized the Coach Richt Bowling Challenge which will begin Thursday, Aug. 28, with team signups at Showtime Bowling Center beginning at 10:30 p.m.

Open to all University students with a valid ID, the 12-week bowling competition will feature 32 five-man teams. The signups are first come, first served. The Challenge will be held every Thursday night beginning at 10:30 p.m. The first night of actual Challenge competition will be Thursday, Sept. 4.

“I’ve always enjoyed bowling and am looking forward to this opportunity for students to enjoy a night of fun in a non-alcohol environment,” said Richt. “I think it will be a lot of fun with some exciting competition all through the fall. I have my own bowling balls, shoes, and even a shirt.”

"I am very excited to support Coach Richt’s Student Challenge Bowling League.” Said Rodney D. Bennett, Vice-President of Student Affairs and Dean of Students. “This league will provide students a unique outlet for social involvement where they will have an opportunity to develop interpersonal skills and collaborate with others in an interactive environment."
