Free Hurling ’10 Year’ Celebration Happening In Missoula Saturday
A decade is a long time, yet it can seem to fly by in the blink of an eye. It seem like just yesterday that Missoula got it's own hurling team. As a matter of fact, Missoula actually has two hurling teams. The University of Montana Grizzlies Hurling team and the Thomas Meagher Hurling Club.
Plenty of Ways To Cheer On the Griz This Weekend
This weekend is going to be an exciting weekend for spring sports in Missoula. Kicking off on Friday will be the University of Montana's "Spring Festival". There will be multiple games taking place, football, tennis, softball, volleyball and if you attend them all and collect eggs from each of them you will be in the running for some prizes. This is a great way to support the different Grizzly athletics and win something cool.
The "10 Year Tournament" is Coming To Missoula on Saturday
On Saturday there will be some hurling. Not the normal weekend kind, but the fast paced, oldest sport in the world kind. It will the the 10th Anniversary of University of Montana Hurling.
