Rider Women's Basketball Team Visits Parkway

The women's Rider basketball team visited Parkway Elementary School to meet with 5th grade students. The students had a great time getting to know a little bit more about the players and what it takes to be a student-athlete at the college level. The head coach, Lynn Milligan, spoke to the students, emphasizing the importance of academics always coming first and, in this case, athletics second. She spoke to the students about their team’s philosophy. Some of the students got the opportunity to play in a shooting game with some of the players. A group picture was taken and then students were able to go around to get autographs of the players and coaching staff. It was a great day and something Parkway looks forward to each year. Parkway has a great relationship with Rider University and especially the basketball teams, and hopes to continue this tradition for years to come.
