ROSEMONT, Ill. -- Rising senior Julie Duncan of the Maryland field hockey team is representing Maryland at the Big Ten SAAC meetings in Chicago this week.
Duncan and Travis Valmon of men's basketball will collaborate, discuss, share, and learn about other Big Ten schools and what programs and initiatives they have within their athletic departments.
"For example, some major topics we will talk about are new ideas and ways to enhance our fueling stations, mental health services to student athletes, and NCAA recruiting rules," Duncan said. "Other Big Ten schools will share what they have done and I will bring back ideas and hopefully implement them into Maryland's athletic department."
Duncan is one of the team's SAAC representatives, along with Kelee Lepage and is currently overseeing the Community Outreach initiative on the SAAC board.
