“We get a lot of support from our surrounding community so this is one way we get to give back,” sophomore swimmer Brant Cassidy said, who is in charge of the event.

Shawn Kornoelje, associate head coach for swimming and diving, started the Mitten Toss 11 years ago. The event has been passed down to the men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams ever since.

Students from Lincoln-King Academy will be at the game. The swim and dive teams will present the clothing to them after.
