MONTEVALLO, Ala. – The University of Montevallo Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) hosted the ‘SAAC Showdown’ in aid of the Make-A-Wish-Foundation. All proceeds went towards the Make-A-Wish-Foundation who work to enrich the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work.

The event was headed by SAAC President Erin Duncan and advised by Assistant Athletic Trainer Jennifer Kramer and Senior Woman Administrator Dawn Makofski. The ‘SAAC Showdown’ consisted of six teams, one more than last year, of seven players participating in four challenges including water balloon tossing, an egg tossing, a hidden washer relay and a water bucket relay in which the students completed five dizzy bats spins then raced down the field with a gallon jug containing holes, with the aim to bring as much water back to their bucket.

The winners on the day were from the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity who ran away with the competition winning all but one event.

The event raised just over $200 which helped the SAAC meet their overall annual goal of $1000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
