UMW’s Eagle Madness scored big on Tuesday, Nov. 7!

The pep rally-style event marked the beginning of Mary Washington’s 2017-2018 basketball season, drawing hundreds of Fredericksburg-area sports fans to the Anderson Center’s Rosner Arena to #RockTheRoz. Hosted by UMW Athletics and presented by Chick-Fil-A and radio station 99.3 The Vibe, Eagle Madness delivered high-energy performances, contests and prizes.

UMW’s dance, cheer and step teams lit up the court, while a deejay worked the turntable. Sharpshooters from both the men’s and women’s basketball teams competed for the three-point championship. And Mary Washington faculty and staff won bragging rights in a head-to-head contest against a randomly selected group of students.

Children showed up in full force, with a dunk contest for the soon-to-be stars of the court and opportunities to meet and snap photos with UMW’s Division 3 players.
