Members of Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s Rangers men’s basketball team were the guests of Lincoln Elementary School in Alva Tuesday afternoon.
Team members, along with head coach Andrew Brown and assistant coach Shane Hansen, shared with the fourth and fifth graders information about the Champions of Character program within the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics.
The young students learned about the program’s five core values – Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Servant Leadership and Sportsmanship.
Following the discussion, the team held a basketball shooting contest where seven students made baskets and took home Ranger basketballs as their prizes. Team members stayed after the program to autograph the basketballs for the students.
