Pink Out Gets TV Time

UWM Associate Athletics Director Kathy Litzau and volleyball coach Susie Johnson will be on WTMJ-TV's "Morning Blend" Friday to talk about the upcoming Pink Out involving the women's soccer and volleyball teams (women's soccer coach Mike Moynihan will be on the road in Ohio during the interview).

The show airs beginning at 9 a.m.

The Pink Out includes the women's soccer match with Butler Friday, Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. and the volleyball match with Wright State Saturday, Oct. 18 at 4 p.m.

The Pink Out is a joint venture between the UWM community and the athletics department to promote breast cancer awareness, celebrate the survivors and support progress toward a cure.

Each day there will be a pregame youth clinic. Friday's clinic at Engelmann Field runs from 5:30-6:15, while Saturday's clinic at the Klotsche Center goes from 2-3. Free admission is available for those attending the pregame clinics. Participants must register for clinics by Oct. 16 by e-mailing David Nikolic at for the soccer clinic and Lindsey Vanden Berg at for the volleyball clinic.
