UNG Athletics Kicks Off 2013-2014 Season With Department Cookout

DAHLONEGA, Georgia – ( – The 2013-2014 athletic season is just around the corner and the University of North Georgia athletic department celebrated the upcoming year yesterday with a kickoff cookout at UNG’s Pine Valley Outdoor Recreation area.   The 220+ student-athletes joined coaches and staff for an afternoon of zip lining, tubing down the Etowah River, sand volleyball, whiffle ball and corn hole.

“The cookout was a great chance for the UNG Athletics family to socialize in a non-competitive environment,” stated Athletic Director Lindsay Reeves.  “It was great to see the interaction between the various sports and the staff.”

The event, which was catered by The Pool Room out of Dawsonville, replaced the previous format of providing an individual cookout for each sport.  The annual event is funded by the Nighthawks Athletic Club.
