TTU Coaches, Players Featured At Chamber Event

When members of the Cookeville/Putnam County Chamber of Commerce gathered Tuesday morning for their monthly "Before Hours" event, the featured guests were Tennessee Tech basketball coaches Sytia Messer and Mike Sutton, and several members of their teams. Messer, in her first year as head coach of the women's basketball team, spoke to the group about her team's progress in 2009-2010. She introduced her assistant coaches and players who were on hand. And, she thanked the group for their support and attendance at the recent games in Eblen Center. Sutton entertained the audience wth a couple of anecdotes and encouraged continued support for both the women's and men's teams over the final month of the season. Tech hosts two doubleheaders later this week, with Eastern Illinois coming to Eblen Center Thursday night and Southeast Missouri coming to town Saturday.
