Scholarshare to Become Title Sponsor of Causeway Cup
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The Sacramento State and UC Davis athletics departments have partnered with ScholarShare to sponsor the Causeway Cup, the universities announced today.
Currently in its ninth season, the Causeway Cup is the annual all-sports competition between the Hornets and Aggies. Each school has won the Cup four times. Last season, Sacramento State overcame 35-5 deficit to win 52.5-47.5.
"ScholarShare, California's 529 college savings plan, is proud to be the official sponsor of the Causeway Cup," ScholarShare Executive Director Zeny Agullana said. "Supporting this longstanding regional collegiate tradition is right in line with our efforts to make the college experience possible for all California's children."
The next competition towards the Causeway Cup will come on Saturday, Nov. 17, in the annual Causeway Classic football game in Davis. The men's basketball teams will play at Sacramento State on Nov. 20 and the women will meet Dec. 30.
"We're excited to welcome ScholarShare to the Hornet family," Sacramento State Director of Athletics Dr. Terry Wanless said. "Not only does their support of the Causeway Cup bring more recognition to the rivalry, it allows our campus community the opportunity to learn more about the ScholarShare program.
"This partnership brings together three organizations which are focused on educating our youth and elevating the importance of a college education."
