BRANDON, MB – Brandon University athletics will provide free admission to Westman Special Olympic athletes on Saturday, January 8 as the Bobcats play host to the University of Saskatchewan Huskies.  There are over 200 Special Olympics athletes in the Westman region who compete in numerous sports including floor hockey, swimming, and track and field. All Special Olympic athletes are invited to come down and cheer on the Bobcats at the BU Gymnasium for free and take part in some unique games including a free-throw competition.

The weekend series should provide lots of firepower as both Huskies teams enter Bobcat country. The Huskies men’s basketball team won last year’s CIS national championship and feature two of the top four scorers in Canada West in junior guard Jamelle Barrett and former Bobcat Rejean Chabot.

The women’s team from Saskatchewan are ranked #2 in the nation and sit with a 8-2 record.

Tickets can be purchased at the Athletics office in the BU Gymnasium or at the door on game night.
