Hiram College on CBS this Weekend!

This weekend, the team, Coach Emily Hays, and President Lori Varlotta will be featured on the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelly on Friday, November 7, between 6:30 - 7:00 p.m. Additionally, they will be featured on CBS Sunday Morning between 9:00 - 10:30 a.m.

These stories will focus on the level of sportsmanship and support of Lauren, and the true spirit of Hiram College. The Hiram spirit impacted the media in such a way that they asked to come to campus to tell the Hiram story!
