Purple/Gold Spring Scrimmage Sunday

The Western Carolina football squad will complete its 2001 spring practices with the annual Purple-Gold Scrimmage, held Sunday (April 8), at E.J. Whitmire Stadium. The team will take the field at approximately 2 p.m., with the first snap set to take place at 2:30 p.m. Admission and parking will be free.
