Gary Pitts is a music loving outdoorsman who coincidentally loves outdoor music. He is a student at Murray State pursuing a music minor to complement his history major. Gary is a member of the MSU Guitar Ensemble and greatly enjoys the Latin grooves he and the other ensemble members get throw down on. When he is not producing news, jamming on his guitar, or pursuing music history research, he is usually canoeing or biking somewhere in nature with his wife Siobian.
This year the Murray State University men's basketball team grabbed the highest NCAA tournament seed in the program's history. Excitement over the Racers' success has spread from the campus into the community. The team won its first 23 games and every home game has sold out since January.
