SALISBURY, Md. – Homecoming week is always special. It's a time of friends, family and alumni coming to campus. And this weekend, at Salisbury University, Homecoming may be even more exciting as the Sea Gull varsity athletics teams will be competing for Capital Athletic Conference championships and the department wants to help current students celebrate the week with commemorative T-shirts to be given away at all of the events this Saturday, Nov. 5.
Salisbury has the possibility of hosting four CAC tournament championship contests on Saturday, while the football team's game against St. John Fisher will determine the Empire 8 Conference's automatic representative in the NCAA tournament, and the winner will earn at least a share of the conference championship. Salisbury University students are some of the top supporters of their teams in the region and to ensure that each championship venue is decked out in maroon and gold, the athletic department will be giving away a limited number of Homecoming/Championship T-shirts to the first students, with a valid SU ID, to enter each event.
Salisbury University's men's and women's soccer, field hockey and volleyball teams will begin their run toward CAC titles during the middle of this week. Each team was the regular-season conference champion, and has earned home field/court advantage throughout their respective tournaments. With a semifinal win this week, all four teams would host their conference championship games on Saturday with the game times yet to be determined.
The Sea Gulls have already earned one fall CAC championship as the women's cross country team collected its fourth straight CAC title this past Saturday at York (Pa.) College. Be sure to come out and support the Sea Gulls as they look to turn Homecoming Weekend into Championship Weekend.
