LAS CRUCES, N.M. – The New Mexico State women’s basketball team hosted its first annual “Meet and Greet” summer barbecue this past Saturday, July 19. Over 90 boosters, tailgaters, and fans made it out to the event to enjoy food and meet the 2014-15 team.
With the entire team, including five newcomers (three freshman, two transfers) in attendance, guests were given the opportunity to get to know this season’s squad. The athletes and coaches were able to visit with supporters and let them know how much they are appreciated throughout each season.
When fans were asked why they support the NM State women’s basketball team the consistent response was because of the young women involved and the way they represent NM State on and off the court. The event had a great turnout with lots of new and returning fans and the team is excited for the momentum to transfer into the 2014-2015 season.
The NM State team extends a special thank you to Pecan Grill, Roberto’s, and Corner Bakery for donating the delicious local food for the special event.
