The College at Brockport's athletics department is proud to announce the first-ever Golden Eagle Pride Week.

Running through Saturday, Jan. 29, Brockport's students and athletes are invited to cheer on their favorite sports teams. Every winter sports team, from men's and women's basketball to gymnastics, swimming and diving, wrestling and ice hockey, is in action at home.

To drum up support for these home games, Brockport is offering our student-athletes raffle tickets for every home game they attend.

For every home game attended, students will receive one raffle ticket. Certain home events reward students whose school spirit goes above and beyond by offering more than one ticket. At various home games during Golden Eagle Pride Week, Brockport t-shirts will be launched into the stands, with each t-shirt containing an additional ticket. As part of Beach Night, students who come to Brockport's swimming and diving meet Jan. 28 against Buffalo State in their swim suits will earn five additional tickets.

The grand prize raffle drawing will occur during the annual Saves for a Cure men's ice hockey game against Neumann University on Saturday night, Jan. 29. One lucky Brockport student will walk away with more than $200 in prizes from various local businesses.

Among the prizes is a $100 gift certificate from the Lift Bridge Book Shop, pizza coupons a free night's stay in a hotel and a gift certificate from Seaward Candies, among others.

There are 10 different home sports games taking place during Golden Eagle Pride Week.
