SCAC 8 in 8 Tour Ready to Get Underway

The SCAC office announced a promotional tour of the conference in which conference office personnel will visit all eight member campuses over eight consecutive days.

The tour, which will be promoted via the twitter hashtag #SCAC8in8, will begin Saturday, October 12 on the campus of Texas Lutheran University and conclude on Saturday, October 19 on the campus of Southwestern University.

"Although the SCAC has been around since 1962, the league almost feels new with the recent membership changes, so we wanted to reach out to the membership to promote the SCAC name on our member campuses and to celebrate our student-athletes," said conference commissioner Dwayne Hanberry. "We hope this will create some buzz on each campus and that students will come out to the events and have some fun with it."

SCAC assistant commissioner James Hill, along with sports information assistant Krista Billingsley, will attend various athletics competitions for eight consecutive days on the eight member campuses. The event will be promoted via twitter (@SCAC_Sports) as well as a daily blog which will be posted on the conference website (www.scacsports.com). The SCAC will also enlist the assistance of a student-athlete representative from each campus to shoot video and take pictures, which will be posted on the conference's Instagram and YouTube accounts.

The Austin College representative in this endeavor will be senior men's basketball player and Student-Athlete Advisory Council member Jordan Hancock.
