Rembert said in order to take all 14 players, the team will need to raise about $3,000 by the time it’s scheduled to leave for Pennsylvania on Monday, March 5.

The Lady Bulldogs are turning to the community for a helping hand.

“Financially, there was just not enough money available to take every player, so what the team did was reach out to the community in an effort to gain financial support or help via donations to make it an event where we could take all,” Rembert said.

The Lady Bulldogs will play their first game in the tournament on Wednesday, March 7, and Rembert said the goal is for all Lady Bulldogs’ players to be along for the experience.

“Myself along with the young ladies of the Selma University Bulldogs didn’t want those four players just left behind,” Rembert said. “We want to make this an experience they can all enjoy together.”

Rembert said he’s hopeful that the community will show its support, and the team would appreciate any contributions.

“We really do appreciate in advance anything that our donors have to offer or will offer us,” Rembert said. “We do realize that it’s sort of a short notice, but we feel in our hearts that it is a very worthy cause and certainly we feel that we’re not only going up to the nationals to represent Selma University, but the city of Selma as well. We just hope and pray that we get a hand in making this a successful event for us all.”
