During the last Warrior Superfan Day at Rend Lake College, local high school students filled the stands to cheer on the Warriors and Lady Warriors in a doubleheader against Olney Central College. The students attended the men’s and women’s games for free to participate in a basketball shooting contest for prizes.
One student from Thompsonville High School volunteered for the Warrior Challenge during halftime of the men’s game. Reed Raubach, a junior who plays baseball and basketball, made the required lay-up, free throw, and 3-point shot in 30 seconds to move on to the winner-take-all half-court shot competition, set for Saturday, February 17. He will compete against four other high school students who participated earlier this season for the chance to take home an Academic Award for 12 credit hours at RLC – valued at $1,500.
