Runnin’ Bulldogs Preseason Camp Winds Down

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. — Gardner-Webb closed preseason training camp on Tuesday morning, practicing for 2.5 hours under sunny skies.

The playing surface was still slightly damp, but footing appeared much better after steady rains and wet conditions bogged down the surface on Saturday and Monday.

The Runnin’ Bulldogs got through the action injury free and worked on a variety of specific areas before closing out practice with 40 live scrimmage snaps and more special teams work. Head coach Carroll McCray is looking forward to getting the season underway.

The squad will now turn its attention to the season opener against Furman. The Paladins roll into Spangler Stadium on Saturday, August 31, at 6:00 pm. GWU will begin a regular meeting and practice schedule, with classes set to begin on Wednesday, August 21.

For ticket information, call Gardner-Webb athletics at (704) 406-4340. Prices remain $20 for adult reserved seats, $12 for adult general admission seating and $7 for non-Gardner-Webb student seating.

All Gardner-Webb students are admitted free to home athletics events with a valid I.D. card.
