Towson Athletics Launches Tiger Fuel Zone To Educate Athletes About Nutrition


By Jeff Seidel, PressBox

Christine Turpin works as the sports dietitian for Towson University athletics and said the newly opened Tiger Fuel Zone serves as a concession stand with "not-so-concession" items.

The Tiger Fuel Zone, which opened at the start of the fall semester on the second floor of the Towson Center and operates from 9 a.m.-11 a.m. Monday-Thursday, features free drinks and snacks for student-athletes coming to or leaving practice, or even if they just want to grab a quick bite.

Turpin said the Tiger Fuel Zone has started well, with 200-250 students coming through weekly. In fact, opening it for more hours will likely be considered, and that's just fine with Turpin.
