SHERIDAN — The Sheridan College basketball programs began practice this week, and there will be booster club luncheon Oct. 8 at the Holiday Inn.
Coaches from the various Generals sports including basketball, rodeo, volleyball and soccer, as well as college president Dr. Paul Young will talk about the state of their athletics programs.
The lunch is set for noon on Tuesday, Oct. 8 at the Holiday Inn Geneva Room, and is free, but attendees should RSVP with SC Athletic Director and men’s basketball coach Steve Smiley.
