9:14 a.m., Oct. 29, 2010----The University of Delaware Athletics Department will be full of Halloween spirit this Saturday, Oct. 30, as the Blue Hens volleyball team, ranked No. 1 in the Colonial Athletic Association, takes on conference foe George Mason University at the Carpenter Sports Building at 7 p.m.
All children are invited to the match for some trick-or-treating fun and are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes.
As part of the night's activities, all children will have the opportunity to visit with YoUDee, join in a special Halloween parade at intermission, and attend a team autograph session immediately following the volleyball match.
A special treat will also be available to those children who are members of the Future Hens Club.
The Hens will also take to the court tonight, Friday, Oct. 29, at 7 p.m, in a CAA match against James Madison University, and the first 250 fans will receive a special giveaway.
