The men’s and women’s basketball teams continued Cumberland’s ongoing effort to give back to the Lebanon and Wilson County communities as the squads hosted Bulldog Madness on Friday night.
More than 100 local kids ages 6-13 joined men’s coach Lonnie Thompson, women’s coach Jeremy Lewis and their respective teams at the Dallas Floyd Recreation Center to learn skills taught by college athletes.
The camp featured ball-handling, shooting, passing and defensive drills before concluding with an autograph session with both teams.
Following the youth clinic, Cumberland students participated in three-point shooting and slam dunk contests.
This year represented the third annual Bulldog Madness as a kickoff to the upcoming basketball seasons. The women’s team begins play on the road against Oklahoma Baptist on Nov. 1, while the men open the season at home against Oakwood on Nov. 5.
