The Athletic department held the Athletics Fair on Tuesday, May 21, where there were live games, carnival games, food and a DJ.

The Athletics Fair was from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Shane Poulter, an athletics counselor here at SAC, helped put on this event with the help of Erica Ledezma, who is the supervisor of the WIN program, the rest of the WIN staff and the Associated Students.

This event was funded by the Student life program which is directed by Xiaopan Xue.

“I think it’s the best event of the year,” Poulter said. “And I just love the energy.”

The Athletics Fair was located on the grass by the library. There were multiple different tents that each hosted a different game for people to participate in such as goldfish toss and a ring toss.

There was also a court set up for people to play pickleball right next to the former Mountie Café.

Sofia Mares, an employee at the Athletics Study Center WIN said, “The reason we’re involved with the Athletics Fair here today is because we are in building 45 and we want to also show the rest of the campus that we’re for everyone. I think our last one was in 2019. For it being a while, I think it’s pretty good.”

Students who attended the Athletics Fair were able to get Chick-Fil-a in the midst of all the activities.

Mt. SAC President Martha Garcia participated in a tug-of-war contest against preschoolers. Followed by the different sports teams competing against each other and eventually going against staff.

With the athletes working really hard this year and having great seasons they were encouraged to let loose and have fun with other sports teams here on campus.

Freshman Jack Benson shares his thoughts on the event.

“I love it,” Benson said. “It’s good to get out here with the guys and the team. Meet some new people out here that also play sports. We can bond over that.”

Benson added, “I’ve never really done anything like this. So I think it’s fun.”

Overall, the Athletics Fair was a huge success drawing in students, staff and faculty to celebrate sports, camaraderie and school spirit with hopes of more events like this to come in the future.
