Pack The Gym & Sophomore Player Recognition at Laker Basketball Games This Saturday

February 24, 2012

The Iowa Lakes Community College Women’s and Men’s Basketball teams will hold a “pack the gym” and sophomore celebration as they host Southwestern Community College on Saturday, Feb. 25, at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. 

The first 200 fans will receive a free pop and popcorn. Several prize drawings will be held for Iowa Lakes Community College students. Prizes include an iPod Nano, gift cards, gas cards, and other items.

Sophomore Emma-Kate Gibson from Tuggerah, New South Wales, Australia, will be recognized before the start of the Women’s game. This is the last home game for the Laker Women. 

The Laker men will also recognize four sophomores – AJ Irby Jr. (Madison, Wis.), Wendell Pelts (Chicago, Ill.), Eric Allison (Milwaukee, Wis.), and Reggie Hearn (Milwaukee, Wis.) – following the women’s game.

There will be performances by the RWC Dancetastic 1 and Zumbatonic® at half time of the Women’s game; and by the RWC Dancetastic 2 and Dancetastic 3 during the Men’s game.  

Following the Men’s game, fans will enjoy a variety of bars and lemonade and will have a chance to visit with current Iowa Lakes players. The event is free for all area students K-12 grades and adult admission is $5.

All games will be held in the gymnasium on the Estherville campus. Students in the Broadcast Media program will broadcast both of the games.  To view the games over the Internet, visit
