BILLINGS MONT. (March 11, 2019) –The Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) women's basketball team spent some time this week with children from the Bench Elementary school in Billings, Mont. The team and staff talked to the children about the importance of getting good grades so that they can get far in life. The Saints also took time to answer questions from the students.
Volunteering for community events is part of the NAIA's Champions of Character program that helps student-athletes find the balance by keeping five core values - integrity, respect, responsibility, sportsmanship and servant leadership - at the heart of the athletics experience.
The Saints will get set for their opening round game against Loyola University on Thursday, March 13, at 10 a.m. central time. The university will host a watch party for faculty, staff, students and Saints fans.
