KWVA Sports and Oregon Pit Crew Announce Partnership

As KWVA Sports builds toward the beginning of Quack Smack 2.0 on January 6th, the department is also expanding its partnerships with other groups around the sports world. As such, KWVA Sports is pleased to announce a new partnership with Oregon Pit Crew, the well-known student section at the University of Oregon.

As part of the partnership, Pit Crew representatives will make a weekly appearance on the new Quack Smack to keep Eugene updated on a variety of Pit Crew happenings. KWVA Sports will also be more involved with Pit Crew events and hopes this partnership will give students an even louder voice in the Eugene athletic community.

Bryan Kalbroksy, Pit Crew VP of Media, joined Sports Directors Joey McMurry, Ryan Rouillard and Travis Teich during Friday Night Spotlight to make the announcement:
