He saw his shadow. So what?
Another busy week in UIndy athletics with winter sports hitting the home stretch in their seasons and yes, even SPRING SPORTS starting this weekend! Punxsutawney Phil (the groundhog) may have seen his shadow--meaning six more weeks of winter--but spring starts this week for athletics programs.
*UIndy softball travels to Arkansas Tech to open its season. The fifth-ranked Greyhounds will play four nationally-ranked teams in February despite not having the opportunity to play outside yet.
*The men's golf team will open Sunday at the GolfWeek Spring Invitational, a tournament which will feature a verytough field of top Division II programs.
*Hall of Fame festivities will take place Saturday on campus. Five individuals and two teams will be enshrined at a ceremony following the basketball doubleheader with Drury.
*Wednesday, Feb. 3 is "National Signing Day". It's the first official day of a signing period for the sports of football, soccer and track & field. Check athletics.uindy.edu for updates on signees Wednesday afternoon as they become available.
