Coach Messer speaks at Kiwanis event

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. - Tennessee Tech women’s basketball coach Sytia Messer was the guest speaker Tuesday afternoon at the Kiwanis function held at the Cookeville Country Club. The second-year coach gave her views on how the 2010-11 season is going and what fans can expect out of the team in the weeks ahead.

Speaking to a group of 50 people at the Cookeville Country Club, Messer talked about her first-place Golden Eagle squad and in particular, what fans can expect as the regular season wraps up. 

The Cookeville Kiwanis Club is a member of the Kiwanis International Foundation. Since 1939, the Foundations has striven to help the lives of children throughout the world.

In similar fashion, Messer's team is involved in numerous community service projects each year and does a variety of outreach activities that put her players into the community in such roles as working with Habitat for Humanity, volunteer reading days in local schools and most recently, visiting the children at the Mustard Seed Ranch.
 
Tech (18-4, 12-1 OVC) begins a two-game road trip Thursday, as it squares off with Murray State. Opening tip is set for 5:15 p.m.
