Ferris Student-Athletes Participate In The Big Event

A "winning" performance was turned in by a number of Ferris State University student-athletes at The Big Event held this last Saturday (April 9) in the Big Rapids community as members of both the women's soccer and men's ice hockey program participated in various city-wide improvement projects.

The Bulldog student-athletes were among a record-setting 1,600 volunteers from Ferris State who gathered at the FSU Campus Quad Saturday morning before dispersing throughout the Big Rapids community to perform more than 200 service projects for local residents within a four-hour time frame. Those who volunteered received their project assignments, tools for the projects and a free "Big Event" T-shirt.

A total of fifteen FSU women's soccer student-athletes along with head coach
Matt Kellogg were Big Event participants this year. Comprising the group were Cassie Aro, Kelsey Aubil, Bri Borgman, Sam Boyle,Hillary Braun, Logan DeClercq, Amanda Foster, Rachel McCollum,Courtney Meharg, Audra Merino, Hillary Procunier, Kasey Ruimveld, Mekyla Spraggins, Katie Syring, and Cassie VanderSloot.
