WILMINGTON, N.C. (Oct. 25, 2006) - Approximately 50 student-athletes served as dock assistants in the recently completed Wrightsville Beach King Mackerel Tournament that raised funds for scholarships at UNC Wilmington.


Members of the women’s basketball, baseball, men’s golf, women’s tennis, volleyball, women’s track and field, men’s track and field and softball teams took part in the project, which ran over a three-day period at the nearby Wrightsville Beach Marina. The Seahawk cheerleaders also added their support.
