The Broncbuster Athletic Association announced on Monday that it was donating several food and snack baskets to St. Catherine Hospital in Garden City to show its’ gratitude towards the nurses, doctors and first-responders working on the front lines in the fight against COVID-19. BAA President, Doyle McGraw, issued the following statement:
“The Board of Directors of the Broncbuster Athletic Association would like to take this time to say thank you to the dedicated, hard-working health-care workers at the hospitals, clinics and nursing homes in our region. They are the true heroes, and we are so grateful for their service during this unprecedented time in our country’s history. So to all the first-responders out there, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
Director of Athletics, Greg McVey, had this to say:
“The global pandemic has created much uncertainty throughout the world. The Broncbuster Athletic Association knows that college athletics are not a priority in most people’s lives at this moment. Even though the balls have stopped bouncing in Conestoga Arena, and the band isn’t playing at Broncbuster Stadium, there will be exciting action again sometime soon. The Board of Directors of the BAA understand that the upcoming months will be tough, and we want to continue being a good partner with the Finney County Community. Over the next several weeks, we will be looking at our sponsorship levels, season-ticket packages, and general admission prices for the upcoming year to make things a little easier on our amazing community partners. Our success on the court, field, track, and course, cannot be achieved without the support that they provide to our student-athletes. In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy, and I look forward to seeing you at one of our many athletic events this fall.”
The Broncbuster Athletic Association has been serving student-athletes for more than 30 years. It provides opportunities through scholarships.
