Donations are being accepted to see one of your favorite Tarleton coaches take a pie in the face as well as benefitting the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The event is being sponsored by the Tarleton Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.
Coaches Bryan Conger (baseball), Mary Schindler (volleyball), Mark Cumpian (softball), Misty Wilson (women's basketball), Pat Ponder (cross country/track and field), Rod Cole (athletic performance), Jerry Don Doyle (women's golf), and Lance Drake(women's tennis), as well as head cheer coach Blaine Hamilton, have volunteered to participate in the event. The "winning" coach will receive their just desserts at the annual homecoming game on Oct. 28 against Western Oregon.
Assigned buckets are displayed in the Tarleton Athletics office in Wisdom Gym for each coach. Donations are being accepted through 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 23. The coach with the most money in the bucket will get a pie to the face at homecoming, unless volleyball coach Mary Schindler wins. In that case, Coach Schindler will accept her fate at a home volleyball event.
