Our local and highly regarded small college, St. Francis, is not only an academic powerhouse but also a contender to be reckoned with in basketball and in water sports. This weekend the college will celebrate “Big Splash II”, a celebration and reunion, and a fundraiser, for the Terriers’ men’s and women’s swimming, water polo, and diving teams. All are invited.
This Friday evening, December 11, from 6:30 to 9:30, at Founders’ Hall, 180 Remsen Street (between Clinton and Court) “Big Splash II” will give you an opportunity to meet current and former aquatic athletes and coaches at a gala event, and to contribute to the teams’ future success. Srdjan Mihaljevic, a 2001 St. Francis alumnus, vice president at Morgan Stanley and former member of the water polo team, as well as coach of the men’s team in 2012-13, when he took them to the NCAA Final Four, said “My association with the program shaped me into the man I am today, and much of my success I owe to St. Francis.” Friday evening’s festivities will be followed by an alumni water polo game on Saturday.
Admission to “Big Splash II” is $50 per person or $75 per couple; tickets may be purchased here. Questions? Contact Carl Quigley, St. Francis’ assistant athletic director, at firstname.lastname@example.org
