The Mercyhurst men’s and women’s basketball teams will be hosting the 2nd annual Mac Madness on Thursday, Oct. 30, at 9 p.m. This event will be held in the Mercyhurst Athletic Center and is open for everyone to attend.
“It’s just a way to get the school excited about the upcoming season and to introduce the school to the players,” senior Terrence Ingram said.
“It’s a big thing in college basketball on the D1 level and I thought it would be good to do it here.”
Kirsten Miller is an elite Division I athlete at Mercyhurst University with an amazing story of bravery, grit and determination behind her equally impressive talents on the ice.
Division I athletes are considered the crème de la crème of young sports played by men and women from across the globe, Miller is no exception to this as the Ontario, Canada, native settles at the Hurst for her freshman year.
The competition in Miller’s homeland between young women for places in Division I ice hockey programs is usually the largest obstacle for athletes at such a level to overcome.
