Apr 6, 2017

KEENE, N.H.--The Keene State College Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and the Office of Greek Life hosted the inaugural Athletes vs. Greeks event as part of the NCAA Division III Week. During the week, the two groups hosted a Penny War to raise funds for the Special Olympics, an official partner of the NCAA. "We had over 300 Keene State students participate in last night's Greeks vs Athletes Olympics! We were thrilled with the success of the event and look forward to making it an annual competition," said SAAC advisor and Keene State softball coach Carrah Fisk Hennessey. The Penny War for Special Olympics was also a success, with pennies counting for each group and silver coins counting against each group. The Greeks finished with -$8.50, while Athletics finished with $23.95. A total of $95.15 was donated to the Special Olympics.
