Tabor plans athletic Spring Showcase

Tabor College will offer its athletic Spring Showcase featuring several sports teams, food and a fun from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday April 25, at various campus facilities.

The event will showcase football as well as the men?s and women?s soccer teams, which have been having spring workouts.

The baseball and softball teams will be playing their last regular-season home games.

Rusty Allen, vice president for intercollegiate athletics, said, ?The Spring Showcase has become a tradition at Tabor College. Not only is it a lot of fun to have friends, alumni and family of our athletes on campus for the day, but it allows everyone an opportunity for a big-picture look at the excellence we strive for in the athletic department.

?All of our athletic teams work very hard in season and during the off-season to develop competitive excellence,? he added.

Tabor College president Jules Glanzer said, ?Athletics is part of the Tabor experience. They give us memories that last for a lifetime. We count time by certain athletic events. With the athletic programs at Tabor increasing in strength and prestige, hanging around winners is just plain fun.?
