Make plans to wear black and attend the Pilot women’s soccer game versus Pepperdine on Friday, October 24, at 7 p.m., as the athletics office tries to “blackout” Merlo Field for the launch of the Portland Pilots new secondary logo. This is a huge event for the athletics department and the campus as a whole. The launch will include giveaways for the first 500 fans at the gate featuring the new logo. Gates open at 6 p.m., so make plans to be at the game early. Every occupied seat counts as the Pilot women hope to maintain their reign as highest in the nation in average attendance for a tenth straight year. All staff and faculty can receive 50 percent off general admission tickets; please contact Dave Taylor at the Pilots box office at 7525.
The action starts on Thursday when the Pilots take on Loyola Marymount at 7 p.m., and will feature one of the most exciting 6 minutes of promotional action with the annual “Halftime Mile” promotion and a scarf giveaway for students. Come out and cheer on not only the men’s basketball team, but also the Pilots runners.
Then make plans to join us on Saturday at 1 p.m. for Senior Day as we honor the four men’s basketball seniors in their final game at the Chiles Center, versus Pepperdine. The game will also feature the famous and ever-so-popular Paper Airplane Toss at halftime, with one lucky fan taking home a trip for two to Hawaii.
