Jimmy Lewis enters his 35th year at Catawba. Starting out as a student in 1984, he was named Sports Information Director in 1996. He now covers the 23 Catawba varsity sports and has several times covered two home soccer games, a home football game, and a home volleyball game. Catawba plays in around 350 games each year. Over 35 years, that is right at 12,300 games that Jimmy has covered. That is a lot of behind-the-scenes work to get ready for every game/event and a lot of late nights on the computer! Read More

Catawba Athletics ONLINE AUCTION:

We continue to work on our first ever online auction to help fundraising efforts for Catawba Athletics. In the past, we have done a Silent Auction, but this year we are changing that event to an ONLINE auction to allow people from all over the world to be able to bid on our items. Our online auction is a work in progress, but we are working hard to make this event special, as well as working to secure some very nice items to be auctioned off. For example, we will have a Harley Davidson motorcycle that has been donated by the Steve Thurston family. JeJe is a member of our Chiefs Club Board and their son Steven is a member of the Catawba Football team.


To order your Catawba Athletics logo belt, click here. The belts are $40 each and a portion of the sales will go back to help support OUR Catawba Chiefs Club. Special thanks to Catawba alumni, former Catawba golfer, and current Chiefs Club member David Van Aken, along with his son Tristan for putting together this special offering. Also, David’s daughter is a freshman this year on the Catawba Women’s Soccer team. Thanks, David and Tristan! So far we have sold 45 belts.
