Raven success recognized by Atchison leaders

(KAIR)--A celebration of Raven success, and a call for public support, as Benedictine College continues post-season action.

On Saturday, the Ravens took the win in the first round of the NAIA National Championship Playoff.

That win was celebrated during Monday's meeting of the Atchison City Commission, with Assistant Coach Charlie Gartenmayer, flanked by Raven cheerleaders, appearing before the Commission. “We are very appreciative of the City and their support of Benedictine College,” Gartenmayer said. “I particularly want to recognize what the City Commission is doing, but particularly [City Manager] Becky [Berger] and [Assistant City Manager] Justin [Pregont] and their progressive thinking. That really helps us at Benedictine College when we recruit.”

Following his comments, Gartenmayer called in the Benedictine College athletic band, which offered a commission room performance of the college fight song.

Once the song concluded, Gartenmayer extended a community invitation to Saturday's football game against Concordia University. “ We've got a big game this Saturday at home. Our students are on Thanksgiving break, so the people in the community, whatever you can do to come on up...I invite everyone in the community.”


The game begins at noon at O'Malley Field in Wilcox Stadium.

During the presentation, the City Commissioners wore Benedictine College baseball-style caps, provided to them by Gartenmayer.
