Indians to admit veterans free

Military personnel, veterans and their families will receive free admission and will be honored with a tailgate event at Catawba’s final football game of the season on Saturday against Lenoir-Rhyne.
In pregame activities, a Catawba flag flown by U.S. troops in Iraq will return home and will be raised at Shuford Stadium.
Catawba’s Office of Admissions is hosting a free tailgate cookout for military personnel, veterans and their families before the 1:30 p.m. kickoff.
The tailgate starts at noon on the Catawba intramural fields on Yost Street, across from the stadium. Hotdogs, chips and soda are on the menu. Military personnel, veterans and their families should plan to enter the stadium on the visitors side, directly across the street from the tailgate event.
Chloe Bully scored a career-best 30 points to lead Catawba’s women’s basketball team to an 82-73 win against Pfeiffer on Tuesday at Merner Gym.
Mallary Clay scored 13 for the Indians, while Emma Ucinski had 12.
Carter Williams scored 21 points and had nine rebounds for the Falcons. Carlisha Holivay added 16 points.
Pfeiffer shot 52 percent from the floor, but that was offset by Catawba’s big edge on the offensive glass and five 3-pointers by Bully.
