ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. – The campus and Greater Olean communities are invited to another sendoff salute Friday morning, this time for the women's basketball team as they leave for Florida and their first-round NCAA Tournament game.
Once again, the parking lot between Richter and Reilly centers will be closed off, with the team boarding the bus starting at 10 a.m. and departing campus at 10:15 a.m., led by a police and fire escort through the village of Allegany and down West State and North Union streets in Olean.
Well-wishers are asked to gather by 10 a.m. at the parking lot, and business owners and community members are encouraged to stand outside and salute the team as they head to the airport.
More than a thousand people saluted the men on campus and in town yesterday morning as they headed to their first-round game Friday afternoon vs. Florida State.
