Sports Samplings – 1/6
South Carolina State is not just winning on the football field. The university surpassed its $2 million goal with its R.I.S.E. Initiative. To date, the total is $2.13 million. “I’m real excited to announce that we’ve exceeded our working goal of $1.78 million. We’ve exceeded our (SCSU President) James Clark challenge goal of $2 million and we’ve raised to date $2.13 million. That campaign has been a huge success,” athletics director Stacy Danley said in a statement.
Flo is back: FloSports will broadcast a package of MEAC sports this year with FloHoops, FloTrack, FloSoftball and FloLive.
