Tech Women Hope To Break Record Saturday
One of the Sears' BracketBuster match-ups this year features the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles going head to head with the Runnin' Bulldogs of Gardner-Webb in Cookeville on Saturday at 7:30 p.m - the second game of a double-header event with the women. Saturday's contest will mark the first time that Gardner-Webb and Tech have met on the court, and will also mark Tech's "Think Pink" and Pack the House events. To support Breast Cancer Awareness, all fans are encouraged to wear pink on Saturday; everyone wearing pink can purchase tickets for one dollar. Additionally, it's Pack The House Night as the Golden Eagle women hope to break the school attendance record. The largest crowd to watch a Tech women's game is 6,113 (vs. Middle Tennessee in 1990), so officials say it will take a massive effort from the student body, the Tech community, and the Cookeville area fans to top that mark.
