Members of the Men’s and Women’s Tennis Teams sacrificed their Saturday last weekend and took part in a community volunteer effort, otherwise known as Johnson Day . Players worked alongside Colby Physical Plant Department(PPD) workers and raked the lawn area outside of Pulver, Colby’s student union. In addition to raking, these students also helped with loading and transporting raked leaves to disposal sites. After a long day of physical labor, the players enjoyed lunch with the workers from PPD at Colby’s dining hall. Johnson Day was an all campus effort to beautify campus and help out the hardworking employees of the Physical Plant Department. Various projects were done by other student groups throughout campus.
Colby athletes were well represented at the Hardy Girls Healthy Women Freaky 5k Fun Run Saturday, October 27, 2012. The Run started at Diamond building and looped around Waterville to conclude its finish at Colby’s newly renovated field house. Participating teams included the men’s ice hockey team, the alpine ski team, women’s lacrosse, women’s basketball, and the softball team. This run serves as a charity event for the Hardy Girls Healthy Women foundation which aims to improve women’s health and women’s perceptions of health and body image. The run intends to defy the stereotypes of scandalous or revealing Halloween costumes and promote funny, scary costumes.
