Getting in the spirit of homecoming


Members of the Adams State University percussion ensemble entertained a group of nearly 200 attending the homecoming tailgate party sponsored by the ASU Grizzly Club. Weekend highlights included the annual alumni banquet and awards as well as several sporting events including the Grizzlies’ disappointing loss to Colorado Mesa University.


And the winner is. . .

Nearly five months of fundraising with a raffle sponsored by the Adams State University Grizzly Club culminated Saturday during halftime of the homecoming football game on Rex Field when Susan Oringdulph of Alamosa was drawn as winner of the 1982 Chevrolet Corvette. Ted Morrison, who with wife Janet ‘Skip’ headed up the raffle campaign to support ASU athletic scholarships, is shown exiting the car at right. An estimated $25,000 was raised with the raffle. Under the watchful eye of ASU President Beverlee McClure, left, and athletic director Larry Mortensen, Kevin Rahn of Highlands Ranch pulls the winning ticket. Kevin’s dad Darren is a nationally renowned saxophone player and is a graduate of Alamosa High School and ASU. He led a jazz band that performed for the alumni Friday night and played at halftime of the football game.
