MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College Athletics Department paired with baseball to host an Easter Egg Hunt Sunday, April 17 following the Bobcats 9-5 win over the University of Montevallo. 

Many friends and family of the Bobcats showed up to participate in the events.  Children up to the age of seven participated in the Easter Egg Hunt following the game, finding over 200 eggs hidden around John Kurtz Field. 

“It’s a great opportunity for families in the community to get involved with Georgia College Athletics,” said Sports Information Director Al Weston. “I thought everything went great and it seemed like the kids were having an absolute blast.”

It marked the Fourth Annual Eggstravaganza that Georgia College hosted, bringing more families than ever before.
