Some of the biggest fans of the Montana Tech Orediggers here in the Mining City are our elementary students.  You see them on Saturdays at Bob Green Field when the football team is doing battle on the gridiron.  Heck, last spring, a healthy contingent of schoolkids were among the "HPER Hooligans" on either baseline screaming their lungs out as the Men's Basketball team made their historic playoff run.  Remember a couple years back when they had free admission and bused every schoolkid in Butte to the HPER for an otherwise meaningless preseason game and they were so loud you would think that the Harlem Globetrotters were playing.  The kids in Butte love the Orediggers and the Orediggers are an easy group to love.

This Wednesday, October 4, is "Walk to School with the Orediggers" day as each elementary in student in town will have the chance to get to know Montana Tech's fine student-athletes up close and personal as they meet at different drop-off points and walk to school together.  All students will be given a t-shirt courtesy of the Montana Tech Foundation, the Montana Tech Mining Engineering Department and Horizon Credit Union.
