Dozens of local high school students filled the stands at Rend Lake College’s first Warrior Superfan Day during a doubleheader against Southwestern Illinois College on Nov. 21. The students attended the men’s and women’s games for free, and represented their high school by wearing apparel or jerseys.
Three high school students were also drawn to compete in the Warrior Challenge, during which they attempted to make a lay-up, free throw, and 3-point shot in 30 seconds to win prizes and a T-Shirt. Those three students were Kadin Kiselewski of Sesser-Valier High School, Chandler Meyer of Mt. Vernon Township High School, and Simon Wilson of Mt. Vernon Township High School.
Two more Warrior Superfan Days are set for Saturday, January 6 and Wednesday, January 17 in the James “Hummer” Waugh Gymnasium on the Ina campus with the same Warrior Challenge during halftime of the RLC Men’s game. All in-district high school students are invited to attend and compete for free. Students who compete are also invited back on Saturday, February 17 for a winner-take-all half-court shot competition, with the winner taking home an Academic Award for 12 free credit hours at RLC – valued at $1,500.
