Tigerville, SC – North Greenville Athletics is proud to announce the Inaugural Pepsi Shootout, the OFFICIAL tipoff of the North Greenville basketball season! Join us on October 9th at 9 pm in Hayes Gymnasium as we kick off a new era in NGU women’s basketball with new head coach Willis Holliday while we honor men’s coach Chad Lister as he heads into his 16th season in Tigerville.
This will be the first year that North Greenville Athletics hosts the Pepsi Shootout in Hayes Gymnasium, introducing 2017 editions of NGU men’s and women’s basketball. But this is not just for the teams! Fans in attendance will have a chance to participate and compete with NGU basketball players in games like the Dizz Bat Race, three-legged sprints, and other entertaining and interactive games.
The nightcap will feature a player versus faculty dodgeball game, allotting North Greenville student-athletes to exact some revenge on Strength & Conditioning coordinator Andre Bernardi and some of their coaches. In addition, NGU president Dr. Gene Fant will lead the faculty team in their quest to prove dominance over the favored athlete squad!
Those in attendance will have a chance to win several door prizes including a 50-inch television as well as gift cards and exclusive North Greenville fan gear. You can also earn points on the official SwordsUp app!
