What’s On Tap? Presented by CU Dining Services
Thursday (October 11)
Creighton Women’s Soccer vs. Drake (7:00 p.m.)
The Bluejays (3-8-2) have four regular season matches remaining before the MVC Quarterfinals. Winless in league play through two games, the Jays look to get on track when they host the Bulldogs (11-3-1) during midterms week. They’ll do so wearing pink jerseys, as Thursday night is the “Think Pink” match in support of breast cancer awareness.
Friday (October 12)
Bluejay Madness (8:00 p.m.; doors open at 7:15 p.m.)
WBR-sponsored Beer Garden and BBQ (5:00-8:00 p.m.)
The Creighton men’s and women’s basketball teams welcome the public to partake in a free event celebrating the official start of college hoops season. Jim Flanery’s women’s team has been practicing sporadically, but Greg McDermott’s men’s squad has its first official day of practice this Friday.
The third annual Bluejay Madness will allow McDermott and Flanery a chance to introduce their teams to CU fans at Sokol Arena. The evening’s festivities also include scrimmages by both teams, a three-point shootout, and a dunk contest.
We are co-hosting a beer garden and BBQ before the event with CU Dining and the athletic department. Stop by for a WBR koozie and a frosty brew!
