There are many wonderful new things happening at the University of Louisiana, one of which you are invited to be a part of. The Athletics Department has decided to move all advertising in house. Therefore, all sport posters, schedule cards and game programs will be created and produced by the Department.  In order to make this endeavor successful, they need the support of the Ragin’ Cajuns community.

Their first project is a huge one! This fall they will be releasing a new football gameday program called "GEAUX".  Each home game (five this year) will have it’s own full color, magazine style program with a new cover, several feature stories on current and past players, as well as information on campus events and other sports.  This is going to bring back a faded tradition and wonderful keepsake that has been missed. Programs will be sold at each home game and all profits will remain in the Athletic Department.  Ads are currently being sold and information and prices can be found on the website http://www.geauxragincajuns.com. Time is running out, so if interested, please call Katie at (337) 482-6337.

Mark Jeffrey, the New Men’s Head Tennis Coach is seeking your support for the 2008-09 season.  This year’s team promises to be one of the Ragin’ Cajun’s best and with 5 new recruits of blue-chip caliber and the top of the lineup returning from last year’s team, this is definitely a Sunbelt Conference contender right from the get go.

To become a member of the Cajun Crosscourt Booster Club or to donate, please go to http://www.ragincajuns.com and click Men’s Tennis, then click donate.  All donations will be greatly appreciated.

The season kicks off September 19 – 21 with a three day event, the UL Men’s Invitational, at Cajun Courts.  Entry is free to the public.

For Alumni that live in the Lafayette area, we are looking for families to host players coming in for the Invitational. If interested please contact Mark at (337) 482-6328 or cajun10s@louisiana.edu.
