Dolphins lend service on Veteran’s Day
The JU baseball and women’s basketball teams each gave back to the servicemen and servicewomen of this country Monday by volunteering at two different Veteran’s Day events.
Eight JU baseball players gave its time at a Music City Event in St. Augustine which was a fundraiser for the Wounded Warriors organization. The players worked various roles which included parking, admission and assisting in the beverage tent.
Earlier in the day, the women’s basketball team helped with registration and at the finish line for the Salute to Veterans 5K race at the Jacksonville River Walk. This the squad’s second community effort in the last two weeks after hosting a click for the Riverside Presbyterian Basketball League following the Dolphins’ exhibition contest Nov. 4.
The women’s team will be back in action Sunday at Florida Atlantic, while the baseball team will open practice in January to get ready for the 2013 season.
