Austin College Ready to Host Legends Weekend

SHERMAN, Texas - The Austin College community is ready to welcome back members of 'Roo Nation for Legends Weekend, which will run from August 2-4 and include this year's Hall of Honor inductions as well as several other honors and celebrations.

Registration ends at midnight tonight for our annual alumni event, and we encourage those who wish to attend but have not done so to visit the registration page today. An important note for those who will be attending, the 37th Annual Slats McCord Golf Tournament is now full, with no more teams or participants being accepted at this time.

This year's event begins on Friday with the 'Roos Reception, which will be hosted in the Pouch Club in the Wright Campus Center. That event will run from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. The following evening is the Dinner and Awards Presentation beginning at 5:00 p.m. in the Sid Richardson Center in the Mason Complex. Hall of Honor inductees Kaitlin Elledge '11, Jason Johnson '93, Kevin Krause '92, Jeff Robbins '83, and Kaitlin Listol Shores '08 will be honored, as will Kedric Couch Alumni Coaches of the Year Jason Burton and Marcus Schulz. Rounding out the evening's honorees is this year's winner of the Coach Joe Spencer Award for Meritorious Service and Lifetime Achievement in Coaching, being awarded this year to former 'Roo women's basketball coach Deb Hunter.

We hope to see you there!
