Islanders Athletics Opens 2013-14 Year With Annual Welcome Back Picnic

CORPUS CHRISTI – The Texas A&M - Corpus Christi Athletic Department held its annual Welcome Back Picnic on Monday night at the fieldhouse on campus. With the 2013-14 school year beginning on Wednesday, the event is the Islanders’ way of gathering all the new and returning student-athletes together to kick off the school year.

The event began with a video featuring highlights from the 2012-13 seasons from all of the Islanders sports, followed by remarks from Athletic Director Scott Lazenby and Vice President for Institutional Advancement Trent Hill to student-athletes about the goals and expectations for the upcoming academic and athletic season.

The event allowed the newcomers and returners to catch up and allowed all of those in attendance to socialize with student-athletes before classes begin on Wednesday.
