Hesston College Alumni/Community Night features free admission to basketball games

The Hesston College alumni office will sponsor its annual Community Night during the final regular season home basketball games Saturday, Feb. 19. The teams will face Region VI rival Brown Mackie College (Salina, Kan.) with women’s tip off at 2 and the men at 4 p.m.

“This will be an exciting and entertaining afternoon of basketball, especially with our rival Brown Mackie coming into Yost Center,” said Hesston athletic director Art Mullet. “Both men’s and women’s games will be highly competitive. Our fans will not be disappointed.”

Free autograph signings by the Hesston teams, a Pop-a-Shot game and free Henna tattoos, courtesy of Hesston College admissions, highlight evening events for youth. Deb Preheim from A Cut Above in Hesston will be giving ‘Lark Clips’, free basic haircuts, during the action. Entertainment also includes a hip-hop performance by Hesston freshman Marcus Ruiz. Admission is free to all.

“We have a great evening of entertainment and athletic competition lined up,” said Director of Alumni and Church Relations Dallas Stutzman. “We hope this free event is a small way to say thanks for the support that is given to the college and its athletic programs from alumni and friends each year.”
