Wentworth to Celebrate Division III Week

BOSTON, Mass. – Wentworth Institute of Technology student-athletes will be participating in numerous activities this week as a part of the NCAA’s Division III Week.

Division III is the NCAA’s largest and most diverse division, with more than 440 members, 40 conferences and 170,000 student-athletes.

Division III Week is an opportunity for all individuals associated with a Division III institution or conference to observe the impact of athletics on the campus and surrounding community, as student-athletes engage in activities focusing on academic accomplishment, athletic experience and leadership/community service/campus involvement.

Running April 8 to 14, the second annual Division III Week celebrates the unique Division III student-athlete experience, which offers a highly competitive athletics environment, a commitment to academic excellence and time to pursue other interests.

Division III schools strive to provide student-athletes the opportunity to discover their potential and develop their passions through full participation in campus life, and ultimately to dedicate themselves to success as citizens and leaders in society.

On Monday, members of Wentworth’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee will be donating food that was recently collected through a food drive to the Greater Boston Food Bank.

On Wednesday, SAAC members are coordinating a dodgeball tournament in Tansey Gymnasium and on Sunday are hosting a softball tournament on Sweeney Field.

In addition to these events, the Leopard men’s tennis team hosts Emerson (4:00) on Monday and Anna Maria on Thursday (5:00), the men’s volleyball team hosts Emerson in a Great Northeast Athletic Conference Tournament match on Tuesday (7:00), the softball team hosts Endicott on Saturday (12:00), the men’s lacrosse team hosts Wheaton on Saturday (7:00), and the baseball team hosts Endicott on Sunday (12:00).
