Homecoming Week at NDSCS kicked-off to a great start this week, and although the weather has cooled, spirits are still high. Students enjoyed special dress-up days, a hypnotist, tie dying, Coronation, a pep rally and much more.
The Volleyball team was victorious on Tuesday night, beating out Jamestown College JV, 3-0. The Ed Werre Arena was a sea of pink with fans decked out in pink clothing to support “Cats for a Cure.” The Cats are set to play again tonight and are hoping for another home win at 7 p.m. against Ridgewater College.
The Football team will face off against the Dakota College Bottineau Lumberjacks Saturday, October 5 at 1 p.m. on the Frank Vertin Field come rain or shine. Here’s hoping the Wildcats can Axe the Jacks once again this year! Stop by the Tailgate Party before the game for food and fun from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.
