Cullowhee, N.C. - The Western Carolina Athletics Department today announced that it will resume the Catamount Coaches' Luncheons beginning next Wednesday, Jan. 21 in the First Floor Hospitality Room of the Ramsey Center.
The luncheons will be held weekly through the remainder of basketball season with five occurring on Wednesday with a pair of Tuesday dates (Jan. 27 and Feb. 24).
The Catamount Coaches' Luncheon event will feature a buffet-style lunch beginning at 11:45 am and will last until approximately 1:00 pm. Head coaches from WCU's basketball programs - Larry Hunter and Kellie Harper - will be the keynote speakers at each event offering insight into their seasons and "X's and O's" from their respective teams, as well as answering questions from those in attendance.
There is an open invitation to everyone in the surrounding communities, but an RSVP is requested by the Friday prior to the next event to allow proper preparations to be made. The cost of the luncheon is $7.00 per person.
Also, spring sport head coaches Christine Hornak (softball), Bobby Moranda (baseball) and Danny Williamson (track & field) are slated to attend the luncheons prior to the start of their 2009 campaigns.
