SAAC hosts successful food fight

The University of South Dakota's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) recently completed a successful Food Fight as part of the Summit League program conducted by student-athletes at all 10 conference-member institutions.

SAAC members collected canned food items at two South Dakota home games and also accepted cash donations outside the local Hy-Vee Store in Vermillion during their drive.

As part of the efforts, Andrew Mack of Vermillion's Hy-Vee joined SAAC Members Alexa Duling and Chris Ganious and presented a check for $925 to Mary Berglin of the Vermillion Food Pantry at the halftime of a recent Coyote Women's basketball game. The money will be used to purchase canned goods.

Total weight of the canned goods donated exceeded 5,800 pounds.
