The Club House : 09/30/09
October 16, 2009
Welcome to the first installment of The Club House. The blog focuses on Texas State’s diverse Club Sport community. Each year, hundreds of Bobcats suit up for their Alma Mater to compete for the thrill of the game. They do not receive scholarships or end up on ESPN, but these players still give their time energy to something that they are passionate about. There are 25 different programs listed with Texas State’s Department of Campus Recreation.
