Barons heat up season with 2nd annual Smoke Screen

The Barons will compete in home conference play in men’s and women’s basketball against the Hilltoppers of Ohio University – Chillicothe on Tue., Dec. 1, 2009, in the Cook Hall Gymnasium. The Lady Barons play at 5:30 p.m. and the Barons follow at 7:30 p.m.

The first 300 people through the doors of the Hangar will receive a free Barons Smoke Screen T-shirt courtesy of Ohio State Lima’s First Year Experience program and the Bleacher Bums, a newly formed student spirit group.

“Penn State has their ‘white-outs’ and Ohio State has ‘red-outs,’ so by having everyone wear their Barons T-shirts, we hope to have a ‘smoke screen’,” said Abe Ambroza, Ohio State Lima FYE program assistant.

Students from Ohio State Lima and Rhodes State College are eligible to play for the Barons. The teams compete against other colleges in the Ohio Regional Campus Conference. There is a regular season champion and a state tournament held each year.

Admission to the Smoke Screen is free for students, staff and faculty of Ohio State Lima and Rhodes State College. For more information about the Athletics Department, visit Lima.OSU.edu/athletics  or call Athletic Director Rob Livchak at (419) 995-8281.
