The Pirate Pride Challenge, which is a contest between all current and former student-athletes to help their teams, is ALMOST OVER. It is running until April 30th and will have two prizes up for grabs. The team that has the highest overall participation rate including current and former student-athletes will be rewarded with a $5,000 gift. The team that has the highest increase of former student-athletes who donated in year 2011-2012 compared to 2012-2013 will also be rewarded with a $5,000 gift. These gifts were made possible by anonymous Pirate Blue donors.

At the this point, Volleyball holds the lead for the highest overall participation rate. They are followed by Women's Tennis in second, and Baseball & Golf tied for third. For the second prize for the highest percentage increase of donors from last year to this year, we have Volleyball in first. For full standings for both prizes and information on how to donate, please go to www.piratepridechallenge.com.

Remember, this challenge ends April 30th, so please get your gift in TODAY!
