MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - The Middle Tennessee Lady Raider basketball team recently participated in "Make a Difference Day" in Nashville as part of a community service project for community center kids.

The event was put together by Leigh Marrero and Jennifer McFall, the latter a Middle Tennessee alumni and one of two Lady Raider alumni in the school's Hall of Fame. McFall is the fourth leading scorer in school history, tallying 1,834 points during the 1982-85 seasons in the Blue and White.

The event was a day that all the community centers in Nashville could bring out a group of children for free, with the Lady Raiders working with kids in different stations during the day. Four different rotations of kids came during the day, with the Lady Raiders conducting a fundamental factory for all the kids. The Lady Raiders also signed autographs and spoke with the kids at the end of each session.

"With Jennifer McFall putting this event together, it's just another way for our team and school to be a part of the local community and promote the sport of basketball," MT head coach Stephany Smith said. "It was a fun-filled day for everyone and our players had a blast with all the local kids."
