The 2017 CIAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournament in Charlotte, held Feb. 21 –25, allowed over 35 youth to see many CIAA (Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association) role models.

Ball Captains Ben Piggott, Robert Chadwick, Dave Morrison and Tim Cunningham continue to show the CIAA Ball Boys and Girls people like Mr. CIAA, Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) Women’s Basketball Coach L’Tona Lamonte, who was a student of Ball Captain Ben Piggott at the Williams C. Sims Sr.  Recreation Center; WSSU Athletic Director Tonia Walker; WSSU Chancellor Dr. Elwood L. Robinson; CIAA Commissioner Jacqie McWilliams; and CIAA Hall of Famer Tory Woodbury, who also was a student of Ball Captain Ben Piggott at the center in the Happy Hill community.

The CIAA Ball Boy and Girl program provides educational experiences to show youth that it is fun to go to college, said Piggott.

Piggott, Chadwick, Morrison and Cunningham volunteer to do this program for youth every year.
