Athletes help with balloon festival
North Central Texas College athletes were able to give back to the community and have some fun at the same time during the first The Sky’s The Limit Balloon Spectacular in Gainesville, held Sept. 7-9 at the Gainesville Municipal Airport.
The event, which benefitted the North Texas Medical Center Foundation, brought in more than 20 hot-air balloons for the three-day event. Despite windy conditions playing havoc with balloon flying on Friday night and Saturday, thousands of people attended the festival.
NCTC athletes from the baseball, softball and tennis teams volunteered part of their weekend to work the event, serving as balloon crew members Friday and Saturday and scorers Sunday.
