Fulton, Mo. - Westminster College is preparing for NCAA Division III Week by setting up multiple events to demonstrate the impact of the Division III philosophy on the campus. Division III week is taking place on April 8-14, 2013.

To start off DIII week, the men’s and women’s basketball teams are pairing with Kappa Alpha Theta and Beta Theta Pi on April 8 to sponsor a blood drive. On April 9, the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will hold a Westminster trivia day through Facebook. They will place a Westminster trivia question on the SAAC Facebook page every hour throughout the day and the first person to respond with the correct answer will win a prize!

To end DIII week, SAAC is holding an obstacle course on April 11 down on the Westminster football field. The teams are co-ed and will consist of four student-athletes (two male and two female). The teams will be paired as followed:
     - Men and Women’s Basketball
     - Men and Women’s Soccer
     - Men and Women’s Tennis
     - Football and Volleyball
     - Track/Cross Country and Men’s Golf

The teams will have to complete eight challenges that will test the student-athlete’s knowledge, speed, agility, and power. The team finishing with the best time will win the competition and the bragging rights over the other sports.

Students and fans are encouraged to join the festivities of DIII week with the Westminster Blue Jays and cheer on their favorite team during the obstacle course. Exact locations and times of the events will be announced soon.
