The Casper College basketball teams will celebrate veterans with a special “Military Appreciation Night” on Wednesday, Feb. 13 beginning with the women’s game at 5:30 followed by the men’s at 7:30.

The T-Birds will take on the Eastern Wyoming Lancers. The last time the two teams met was in Torrington, Wyoming, on January 23 when the men and women won, the men 80-70 while the Lady T-Birds won 103-69.

The evening will feature free admission for veterans and current military and their guest with valid ID. In addition to the free admission, the Casper College Veterans Club will hold a 50/50 raffle to benefit their programs, representatives from different military branches will be in attendance, a color guard will perform, and Technical Sergeant First Class Brandon Rodriguez will perform the national anthem.

Admission for nonmilitary to “Military Appreciation Night” is $4 for those 18 and over, $3 for those 60 and over, and $2 for those aged 13-17. Children 12 and under get in free.

Both games will be held in the “Swede” Erickson Thunderbird Gym on the Casper College campus. For those unable to attend, the game can be viewed on the Casper College athletics website under “Fan Zone” at www.tbirds.cc.
