The UMKC Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) hosted its third annual Rockin' Roo Talent Show on April 12. This year's event was held at the Student Union Theater on the UMKC campus and consisted of celebrity judges evaluating nine teams and their acts in front of a crowd of 300.

Acts varied from choreographed musical routines to comedic skits, and featured our men's and women's soccer, men's and women's track & field, volleyball, softball, men's and women's tennis, women's golf and women's basketball.  The women's basketball team walked away the winners, followed closely by the women's soccer team, and the men's soccer team. 

"It was great to see the student-athletes having fun; they are truly a creative and talented group both on and off the field," said Associate Athletics Director for Student-Athlete Services, Ursula Gurney.

"The student-athletes are already planning for next year's show, each year the acts keep getting better and better," said SAAC Co-President Brett Guemmer.

The Rockin' Roo Talent Show was the final event of the year planned by SAAC. They will begin the 2012-13 academic year by participating in UMKC's Move-In Day on August 17th.
