On Jan. 21, Austin College (located in Sherman, Texas) hosted the second annual Area 10 Basketball Skills Local Competition. More than 300 attendees were in attendance for Austin College’s “Janserve” day, which was a day of service for students on campus during the month of January.

Over 40 students from various Austin College organizations volunteered their time to participate in the event.

“Today was so much fun for us, because of how much fun these kids were having,” freshman soccer player, Garrett Matacale said. 

In addition to the men and women’s soccer teams, students from fraternities, sororities, Austin College Service Station and the Austin College Athletic Department came out to volunteer. 

Freshman, Nikita Patel said, “It was so much fun to work with all of these great kids and help out in any way we can.” 

Students helped at the Special Olympics Texas competition in the morning and then traveled to nearby schools to volunteer in the afternoon.

During the event, Atmos Energy donated and grilled hot dogs for the athletes’ lunches.

Congratulations to Austin College students, athletes, coaches, Special Olympics Texas – Greater Dallas and Sherman ISD for a great day of competition!
