Athletes honored at awards program

RUSHVILLE — The RCHS student athletes were honored Tuesday at the annual winter sports awards program following another successful year for the Lions and Lady Lions.

Athletic Director Dave Green welcomed those in attendance and then on behalf of the athletic department, received a check for $12,000 from

Booster Club president Mike Purcell. The money raised by the Booster Club is what keeps costs away from RCHS student athletes. Many schools have gone to participation fees and travel fees for athletes and the hard work by the Booster Club takes expenses away from the families.

Most Valuable Gymnasts was given to Kylee Elleman, the first RCHS gymnasts to reach the state finals. Elleman will compete at the state Saturday on the beam.
