Early Learning Center Visits with Georgia College Basketball

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Members of the Georgia College women's basketball team and head coach Maurice Smith recently had a visit from preschoolers at the Early Learning Center, as the Bobcats worked with the youth on staying active.

Over 30 preschoolers visited the Centennial Center Monday, Sept. 9, learning dribbling and passing drills, the importance of staying in school and working hard, and much more.

The Bobcats are fresh off a turnaround season and poised to make some noise in the Peach Belt Conference (PBC) this year. Bobcat Madness, the annual kickoff event for GC basketball, is set for Thursday, Oct. 17.

The Georgia College Department of Athletics, two-time winners of the PBC Commissioner's Cup, sponsors 11 varsity athletic programs at the NCAA Division II level. As a Division II program, Bobcat Athletics prides itself on balancing the life of the student-athlete, evidenced by the teams' multiple appearances in post-season competition as well as documented academic success and community-service involvement.
