Despite being busy preparing for their last home game of the season, members of the Wollongong Hawks took time out on Monday to visit an Illawarra preschool.
Students at Kenny Street Community Preschool in Wollongong had a chance to learn about the importance of eating healthily, play some games with the athletes and wish them luck for their game on Friday.
The big showdown with arch rivals the Sydney Kings at WIN Entertainment Centre starts at 7.30pm. If they beat Sydney, the Hawks go into the semi-finals.
