“Centenary’s Women’s Softball team has been hosting the Tricky Tray for more than a decade,” says Kim Broking, Assistant Athletic Director and Head Softball Coach at Centenary University. “The event has become a fundamental opportunity for the local community to support our athletes and to win prizes that have been donated by our local restaurants and vendors. We typically get over 200 participants and the turnout continues to grow each year. The Tricky Tray really underscores how Centenary student-athletes embrace and understand the importance of community relations. It is such a lively and exciting experience. There will also be a full concession running during the event with tons of great food. We are very appreciative of all who support this initiative.”
