GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Florida lacrosse juniors Lexi Bolton and Emily Petillo were two of 28 student-athletes invited to the SEC Career Tour, as the league announced on Wednesday.

The third annual tour will be held in Atlanta from Nov. 27-29, leading up to the SEC Football Championship Game.

The group is scheduled to visit the headquarters and meet with executives at several corporations in the Atlanta area, including UPS, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, The Home Depot and the Atlanta Hawks organization.

Also included on the agenda for the student-athletes is a dinner with SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey.
