Date set for 2020 HBCU Challenge

November, 2019 update -- Thanks to all for participating in the 2019 Cedric Walker HBCU Challenge! We had great weather and some great champions at WakeMed Soccer Park. We've already set the date for the 2020 event: Saturday, October 3! Hope to see you there! Please enjoy the coverage below.

The NSAF deeply appreciates those who were instrumental in getting this event started and have been vital in sustaining it since then:

The 5th edition of this event in 2013 was special as we honored Mr. Walker (mentioned above, who passed in March, 2013) for his years of service to the Challenge, the Foundation and to our sport in general.

The Cedric Walker HBCU Challenge featured an intriguing mix of the “old” and the new. The “old” included North Carolina A&T State regaining the men’s team title they lost last year and the Aggies’ G’Jasmyne Butler (at right) winning her 2nd straight individual crown. On the other hand, new to the top of the podium was Fayetteville State U. in the women’s team race and Mathew Chesum (lower right) in the men’s individual battle.
