WINCHESTER, Va. - The Shenandoah University Department of Intercollegiate Athletics announced Tuesday that it will be holding a frisbee dog promotion the weekend of September 10-11.
The World Champion Frisbee Dogs, which have performed at major league sporting events for over 20 years, will be performing at halftime of both the Hornets football game versus Bridgewater on September 10 and halftime and postgame of the men's soccer game versus Washington (Md.) on September 11.
The department is attempting to set an NCAA Division III record for regular season attendance around the soccer contest.
The soccer game, and frisbee dog promotion on Sunday, will be free to attend.
"We are attempting to set the record for attendance," said Meredith Cox, the department's promotions director.
"We have invited all Blue Ridge Soccer Association soccer players and are in the process of inviting students from the public schools in both Winchester and Frederick County.
"This is going to be a great event that is fun for children of all ages."
In the past 20 years, these frisbee dogs have performed at over 300 NFL and NBA halftimes and many have seen these amazing canines on ESPN, The Sports Channel, Disney Channel, and National Geographic.
“We are super excited to have the World Champion Frisbee Dogs here at Shenandoah,” said Wayne Edwards, Athletic Director. “We have been extensively promoting this event and are thrilled for the community to see them.”
The football game is scheduled for a 7 p.m. kickoff on Saturday and the men's soccer game for 2 p.m. on Sunday.
