The Hope College swimming & diving, track & field, hockey and women’s basketball teams have all experienced an unexpected and sudden end to their seasons due to cancellations amid measures to contain Coronavirus. Practices and competitions for our spring sports have also been canceled for the remainder of the school year. Our hearts go out to these student-athletes, especially the seniors, who put so much effort into preparing for athletic contests that will now not be taking place.
To lift the spirits of the student-athletes and to celebrate their awesome seasons, we are asking for your help! With all of the cancellations, many of us have some extra time – please consider using some of it to record a video wishing our teams well and congratulating them for their accomplishments on the track, in the pool, on the field, on the ice and on the court. We will be creating a compilation of all the videos to be shown to the coaches and teams and then displayed on social media. We’ll even ask the teams to vote for their favorite video – the creator(s) of the winning entry will receive a Hope College swag bag including Hope branded hand sanitizer!
Be heartfelt, be creative, be funny – show your Hope pride! For some inspiration, take a look at the video President Scogin’s family created for the women’s basketball team!
To share your video, upload it to our Google Drive folder by Friday, March 20 and we’ll use it to put together our compilation.
