They almost did it. And damn it, that counts for something.
After a big season, the Eagles will throw down with a celebratory rally at the River Park Square Mall atrium on Saturday, Jan. 12 at 2 pm.
Mayor David Condon and the Spokane County Commissioners will deliver a special proclamation about the team. The Eagles’ mascot, Swoop, the cheer squad and band will also be at the event to celebrate the Eagles' 12-3 season.
Special guests to the event include head coach Aaron Best and the football team, EWU President Mary Cullinan, EWU Associate Vice President/Athletic Director Lynn Hickey, among others, and long-time EWU announcer Dave Spencer will serve as emcee, a press release says.
