Trojans aren’t angry... they’re MADD

The Olympic Trojans may not be too upset with the season, sitting at 7-3 in the Olympic League standings.

But that won’t keep the Trojans from getting MADD.

The local chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving will sponsor Olympic’s 6 p.m. game on April 24 at the Kitsap Fairgrounds Ballfields.

Olympic will play host to the Bremerton Knights.

Numerous community members, parents and students will be in attendance that night along with chapter president Marsha Masters.

Masters has arranged to have a crashed car in the parking lot where fans enter to show the potential effects of drinking and driving.

There also will be information announced via the public address system throughout the contest regarding drinking and driving and other related information.

In addition, Kitsap County Sheriff Steve Boyer will be throwing out the first pitch.

Andrews said the awareness event is one that can become yearly.

“I plan to coordinate a similar event annually in an evening game,” Andrews said. “The opponent may change each year but I like the idea of having the event when we are playing Bremerton.”
