KU Announces Lawrence Public Schools Elementary Challenge

Feb. 15, 2007


Kansas Athletics will host the Lawrence Public Schools Elementary Challenge during the final two home games of the women’s basketball season: Sunday, Feb. 18 against Kansas State and Wednesday, Feb. 21 against No. 14 Oklahoma.

All Lawrence Public School elementary students and staff will receive free admission to both games. Discounted tickets will be available for the KSU game for families of elementary students. Students and staff can pick up their free tickets in the Hall of Athletics on the east side of Allen Fieldhouse, on the day of the game.

The elementary school that has the highest combined percentage of its population in attendance for both games will receive a grand prize to be determined by their principal. The class with the highest combined attendance at the two games will win a party at a KU baseball game this spring. For more information, please contact Chris Jones at 785-864-7976.

The Sunflower Showdown against Kansas State will air live nationally on Fox Sports Net at 1 p.m. KU’s matchup with 2006 Big 12 Champion Oklahoma will air on Metro Sports with tip-off set for 7 p.m.
