Kickball Tournament for YMCA

ASG recently hosted a philanthropy kickball tournament to benefit the Adair County YMCA.   The teams participated in a double-elimination tournament on October 7, 2012.  ASG girls coached the teams, and the weather was beautiful!  We raised $100 dollars for the YMCA with this event. Thanks to the men of Beta Theta Pi, the women on the ASG teams, and the men and women of Beta Alpha Psi, and Sweet Nothings for participating in the tournament!  Congratulations to Beta Alpha Psi for winning the tournament!!
