NWC cancels Sports Rendezvous

Written by Tribune Staff

Officials with the Trapper Booster Club announced earlier this week that the Sports Rendezvous dinner and auction planned for Tuesday, Sept. 16, has been canceled.

The club's board members, stating a low number of RSVPs for the event, added that more emphasis will be placed on the Trapper TailgateParty scheduled for Monday, Sept. 22.

The tailgate party, which is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. at Hank Cabre Gymnasium, will be held in conjunction with the Lady Trappers' first home volleyball match of the season. That match, which will be against Dawson Community College, has a scheduled 7 p.m. start time.

According to booster club members, the tailgate party will feature a family-friendly environment, music, volleyball contests, prizes, hot dogs and cookies. Admission to the Trapper Tailgate Party is free, but a hot dog plate with chips and a cookie will cost $2.

Those attending the tailgate party and volleyball match will be part of a historic night. The match will serve as Flavia Siqueira's home debut as head coach of the Lady Trappers. Her team has played 19 matches so far in 2008, but all of those have been played outside of Powell.

Siqueira's team currently boasts an impressive 14-5 mark. In their most recent action, the squad went 6-0 at the Colby (Kan.) Community College Classic Tournament.

The match also will be the first competitive event on Ken Rochlitz Court at Hank Cabre Gymnasium since the addition of stadium seating.

“I'm excited about it because it's an opportunity for us to showcase our student-athletes,” said Jim Ziegler, NWC athletic director and head wrestling coach. “The volleyball team is having a great season, and they're looking forward to playing at home. It would be great if we could fill

Cabre Gymnasium with fans. I'm also excited about it being the new grand opening for Cabre Gym because of new seating.”
