CULLOWHEE, N.C. - In the continuing effort to provide innovative and insightful programming for the Catamount Tracks Podcast, the Western Carolina University Athletic Department is pleased to introduce the first edition of the Catamount Student-Athletes Roundtable hosted by women's basketball players Heather Swayne and Jessica Jackson.
Heather and Jessica begin their first podcast discussing the success of the women's basketball team this past year, give a re-cap of each sport from the 2007-08 season, discuss what the Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) does for the student-athlete experience, and talks about what their plans for the summer.
They plan to offer a weekly podcast throughout the summer, and in the following weeks will bring in fellow student-athletes as guest. Missing from the roundtable group in the first podcast was Heather and Jessica's teammate Brooke Johnson, who was out of town for the inaugural podcast. However, when they return in two weeks, Johnson will join them and discuss her rehab this summer and eagerness to return to the court in 2008-09.
The student-athlete roundtable podcast will also be interactive with the fans. Listeners who would like to offer suggestions or would like to request a guest for the podcast can do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
