NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee State University women’s basketball program hosted a breakfast for former Lady Tigers and supporters Saturday morning following the Homecoming parade.
During the event, which was held in the Faculty Dining Hall, former Lady Tigers had to opportunity to meet the current players and coaches, get signed posters and learn about the Fast Break Club.
Assistant Coach Chelsia Lymon, who spearheads the Fast Break Club initiative, addressed the crowd and provided information about the women’s basketball program and the Fast Break Club. She also talked about the importance of bridging the gap between current and former Lady Tigers. There were also presentations to supporters from last season.
Seniors Diamond Beatty, I’mani Davis and Jayda Johnson spoke to the crowd of more than 50 while Coach Larry Inman also had words.
“I thought we had an incredible turnout for it to be only our second year celebrating our alumni and current players,”” said head coach Larry Inman. “The feedback I received from several in attendance was they appreciated the honor that we paid our alumni and how much the families that were in attendance enjoyed the meal and fellowship with others. We are planning on doing this each homecoming for our alumni and we look forward to many more attending next year. The only problem we might have is finding enough room for the event since it was almost full this year.”
Following the conclusion of the breakfast, the Lady Tigers took photos then headed to Nissan Stadium for tailgating and the TSU versus Eastern Kentucky football game.
