Tournament of Champions: Every year at the end of D3 week, the Kinesiology Department hosts Tournament of Champions. Elementary and middle-school aged children with disabilites are invited from all over the state of Maryland for a fun-filled day. These athletes will get to play sports games throughout the day, partnered with a buddy from McDaniel. This is one of the best days to be on the Hill!
