The 2nd annual Lakehead Athletics Midnight Madness was a big success on Friday night/Saturday morning. As part of the Lakehead First Year Orientation program the men's and women's basketball team held intra-squad scrimmages in front of over 1000 students, staff and supporters in the Thunderdome.
Senior student 'ambassadors were on hand to instruct the new students in the various traditions of the Thunderdome including the "white out" and some introductory heckling. The event marks the end of the team's training camp and the beginning of pre-season practice. The team tips off against the University of Regina during homecoming weekend October 1 and 2 (only three weeks away!).
