West Virginia University athletic teams ignited the
Mountaineer spirit nationwide during the past year. To recognize these
accomplishments, alumni and friends from near and far will gather
Tuesday, Feb. 27, for a special "Another Great Mountaineer Year"
Nearly 40 WVU Alumni Association chapters and constituent groups will
host game-watching parties during the nationally televised WVU-Pitt
basketball game as part of this special celebration. Alumni and friends
will also have the opportunity to watch a special DVD collection of WVU
football highlights provided by the WVU Alumni Association and the WVU
Athletic Department. The game will be televised on Feb. 27 at 7 p.m. on
"Our athletic teams continue to earn national accolades," said
Steve Douglas, president and chief executive officer, WVU Alumni
Association. "We are very proud of the accomplishments of our young
men and women athletes. This is a great way for our alumni to show their
support of their alma mater and show their Mountaineer pride - no matter
where they may be."
From Los Angeles to Boston, the Mountaineer faithful will be
participating in this special celebration. This is the second year that
alumni chapters have hosted the event. Last year, thousands of alumni
throughout the country gathered together to watch the Mountaineers beat
the Pitt Panthers.
