GRAVETTE -- The Competition Gym was rocking Thursday night when the Lady Lions played host to the Lady Pioneers in the final home volleyball contest of 2021. One group of devoted Lady Lions fans provided the extra cheer need to help the Gravette team pull off a much-needed win over the Gentry visitors.
The Lion and Lady Lion student section has provided a vital and very entertaining tool to bring fans into the volleyball matches all season long.
The home volleyball contests have had a theme for each event. The first match on Aug. 17 was Hawaiian Night. A sea of wild Hawaiian-style shirts engulfed both the student and fan sections. Some of the other theme night outfits included Jersey, Orange Out, Super Hero, Western, and '70s' Hippie nights. But, by far the most memorable theme was Pink night.
Once again the student and fan sections were filled with a sea of pink. Leading the student section was a six-foot pink bunny rabbit.
Throughout the contest, the students provided a level of both intimidation and inspiration that proved to work in the Lady Lions' favor (the Lady Lions took the conference win in three sets).
Look for the student section to provide an extra level of Lions Pride during the upcoming basketball season in Lion Arena in November.
