GORHAM, Maine  - Join USM Athletics and Student Activities for a Family & Friends Weekend BBQ Celebration on Saturday, September 23 from 11 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  With four Husky home games scheduled, there will be plenty of action for Huskies' fans to enjoy along with a tremendous BBQ menu, raffles, yard games and prizes. 

The BBQ lunch will be hosted outside of the Costello Sports Complex entrance (Gorham Campus) and is free.  Provided by USM Dining Services and Sodexo, menu items for the day includes barbequed chicken, pulled pork, potato salad, slaw, roasted harvest veggies, cider and a candy apple bar.  Those in attendance can register for a free raffle to win a USM Athletics backpack, and meal plan dollars.  Before filtering into a Husky game, Husky fans can partake in several yard games, including corn hole, can jam and ladder ball.  

"We are excited and happy to partner with Student Activities and the Fan Experience Committee to bring a festive atmosphere to our game day activities," noted USM Director of Athletics Al Bean.  "Our student-athletes are always appreciative of the tremendous fan support they receive from USM, the community and their friends and family."

Huskies' volleyball will start the day playing the first its two matches on the day against Little East Conference rival Rhode Island College (12:00 p.m.).  Women's soccer will also face the Anchormen on Saturday (1:00 p.m.) at Hannaford Field, while the women's tennis team will take on RIC at the same time at the Gorham HS tennis courts.  At 4:00 p.m., Huskies' volleyball will be back in action against in-state opponent Colby College to close out the day.
