W&M Gymnastics Sponsors Local Food Drive

(Tribe Athletics)

WILLIAMSBURG — The William & Mary men’s and women’s gymnastics programs have a long tradition of excelling athletically, academically and in the community. This year’s teams continued to build upon that tradition by sponsoring their annual food drive, which collected 2,400 pounds of non-perishable food for the local FISH food pantry.

This winter marks the 14th year that W&M has sponsored a food drive benefiting FISH. During that span, the Tribe has collected 32,177 pounds of food and blankets for the organization.

The FISH volunteer food pantry serves hundreds of clients each month by providing emergency food, clothing and transportation services.

Senior captains Aidan Cuy and Connor Bowman organized the collaboration and were greatly assisted by members of the women’s team.

Both programs will open their seasons on Sunday, as the men will compete against Simpson in a virtual meet and the women will travel to George Washington for the Lindsey Ferris Invitational.
