Hillcat Women Spend Time in Frankfort Community
FRANKFORT, Ky. – The Rogers State women’s basketball team spent early Monday evening at the Ashwood Place Senior Living Center in Frankfort, Kentucky visiting with residents as they finished dinner and facilitating games of Bingo.
The Hillcats will face University of the Cumberlands (Ky.) Wednesday at 9:45 p.m. (EST) in the NAIA Division I Women’s Basketball National Championship but prior to hitting the hardwood for competition the women went table to table meeting residents of Ashwood Place at the end of dinner. Among the residents RSU student-athletes met was a 101-year old woman.
Following dinner the RSU women called out numbers for Bingo and interacted with residents while assisting in games of Bingo.
“The opportunity for us to visit with the residents of Ashwood Place and take a break from our preparations for the National Tournament on Wednesday was very special,” said head women’s basketball coach Amy Williams. “I think both our girls and the residents gained something from our time there.”
Rogers State (20-11) will face the University of the Cumberlands (Ky.) on Wednesday inside the Frankfort Convention Center. The No. 12 at-large bid RSU takes on the Mid-South Tournament Champion Patriots (28-3) in a 9:45 p.m. (EST) scheduled tip. Live audio streaming will be provided at www.rsuhillcats.com/live.
