Here’s how you can get fit and help student-athletes at the same time
ROANOKE, Va. – If you’re looking to get active for a good cause, an upcoming virtual 5K will allow you to do just that. You can run, jog or walk any time between April 5 and April 12 anywhere you’d like to take part in the Hollins Hustle Virtual 5k. “Will be used for all the teams across the department. Hopefully to advance our budgets a little bit to allow us to do a little bit more for the student-athletes and we’re working on a project to upgrade locker rooms to get rid of the old metal lockers to put in nice wood, open lockers and spruce those areas up for the student-athletes,” said athletic director Myra Sims. Registration is open thru March 31.
Hollins opts out of basketball season, four spring sports
ROANOKE, Va. – Hollins University recently announced it will not be participating in any high risk spring sports--women’s volleyball, women’s soccer, women’s indoor track and field or women’s lacrosse-- due to COVID concerns. This comes after it decided in December to opt out of the basketball season. Protocols that Hollins plans to continue to adhere to. When you’re not competing it’s hard to practice for weeks and weeks. A full time out so to speak, for what could be a great run for the Hollins next season.
