Blue CWRU has hit the ground sprinting this semester as they work towards their goal. This Saturday, Sept. 19 the group will be cheering on the CWRU football team as they take on the St. Vincent Bearcats in this season’s home opener. They will be following up the week of cheering and supporting the teams with three more planned games to attend so far this year.
The Blue CWRU will be out in force at the Oct. 10 homecoming game, the men and women’s Soccer team’s doubleheader against arch rival Carnegie Mellon and finally the basketball home opener for both the men and women’s squad on Nov. 17.
However their biggest event this year, what the organization is most excited about is their “Fire Sale,” occurring Sept. 26 in the Tinkham Veale University Center. In conjunction with the athletics department the group will be selling off a huge supply of CWRU spirit wear and athletic wear for student friendly prices.
These items were bought before the school rebranded their teams to the navy and grey CWRU look from the old designs of blue and white with the Case moniker. These items will be sold for between $1.00 and $5.00.
“We want to flood the market,” said Murcia. “There should be no reason that students don’t have clothing to express that spirit.”
In the future, the group sees this as a way for the student body to connect, not only to their athletic teams but also to each other. They see alumni wanting to come back and cheer on the Spartans. They want both academics and athletics to coexist.
“We want people to walk campus and see the Spartan logo all over, have people wearing CWRU gear and be able to see the spirit,” said Murcia.
