Lady Bears Visit Ribidoux Middle School


March 22, 2011 - The Lady Bears visited Ribidoux Middle School to meet the young people that would be cheering for them in the quarterfinal round of the Division II NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament. Each of the Elite Eight teams were assigned a school that will come and root for them so each team will have a cheering section - even those, like Shaw, who are very far from home.   The students and teachers had done research on Shaw, Raleigh, and the Lady Bears.  The students had also decorated their lockers with Bear logos and North Carolina flags.The Lady Bears answered questions, took part in a basketball shooting contest, taught the students a couple of Shaw cheers.  Every member of the Shaw traveling party was presented with a goodie bag by the students.
