MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - The Blue Raider Athletic Association will be sponsoring bus trips to the Sun Belt Championships in Hot Springs, Ark., as announced by associate athletic director Alan Farley.

The Sun Belt Championships will be held March 5-8 with both the men's and women's tournaments being held at the same time and venue.

A spot on the bus to SBC Championships will cost $165 per person. Hotel reservations, Hampton Inn, for the trip will cost $120 plus tax for a double and $135 plus tax for a king with a sofa sleeper. To guarantee rooms reservations for the trip need to be made by Monday, Feb. 7.

The bus will depart Friday, March 4 and return after both teams win the tournament championship or have both been eliminated from play. The bus will also provide other opportunities while in Hot Springs, Ark., such as a day at the Oaklawn racetrack and visiting other attractions in the area when the Blue Raiders are not playing.

"This is a great opportunity for our fans to take part in March Madness and the Sun Belt Conference Tournament at a great venue. The feedback we have received from fans in the past is how enjoyable it is to be around the teams, band, cheerleaders, and just being exposed to the entire post season experience," Farley said.
