LSUA introduction of Tank set for activities on Feb. 29


ALEXANDRIA, La. (LSUA) - With the tough and powerful, yet playful and affectionate bull terrier adopted as the LSUA Generals mascot in 2018, the time has arrived for "Tank" to come to life, and his official introduction has been set for Saturday, February 29 during a myriad of athletic events.

"Our campus and community have embraced 'Tank' as our mascot, and we have watched as the mascot logo has been widely used," said Adam Jonson, LSUA Director of Athletics. "Introducing our mascot character provides the opportunity for us to further the connection between the community and our campus."

The introduction of "Tank" will take place between the men's and women's basketball games in The Fort at approximately 3:40 p.m. Once "Tank" has been introduced, the LSUA mascot will be available to meet and for pictures until men's basketball senior day ceremonies begin prior to tipoff. Themed giveaways will also be offered to those in attendance.

Throughout the next two weeks, additional information will be released through the LSU of Alexandria social media pages and the LSUA Generals social media pages.
