Tri-Aggie Thon Succeeds with Triple the Fun

BY Alyssa Fox on 11/21/2017

Goodwell, Okla.—On Sunday, November 12, the Panhandle State campus was buzzing with SAAC members and Aggie athletes as the first annual Tri-Aggie-Thon got underway.

Participants partook in three different phases of team competition including a 3-point shooting contest, relay race and a trivia showdown. The event was open to all ages and students, adults and children alike enjoyed a rousing day of fun. Third place went to softball's team, The Brotato Chips, followed closely in second place by baseball's Team Okay, and the winners were women's basketball and their Team BAMF.

SAAC member, junior Madison Linton, hopes students will extend their ideas for more exciting and entertaining events to add to next year's Tri-Aggie-Thon. SAAC Advisor, Russel Gaskamp, is excited about the expanding role SAAC will have on campus and its impact for the school as a whole, saying, "SAAC is a group that is going to be very active on campus as well as a voice for the student athletes. The goal of the group is to try to improve the student-athlete experience here at Panhandle State, and putting on fun events for the student athletes as well as the community is part of the mission. We look forward to suggestions for our next event, which will be in the Spring. We want to make great ideas come to life and show off our awesome campus!"
