The Winona State University Athletic Department welcomed the community to Warrior Fun Night having some fun with inflatables, games and the Warrior athletes.

The Student Athletic Advisory Committee and Midtown Foods hosted the event on Saturday, Aug. 7, on Johnson Street by McCown Gymnasium.

Volunteers were student athletes who represented a wide range of Warrior sports including volleyball and baseball.

Kids of all ages enjoyed inflatables, face painting, a coloring contest, water balloon toss and free food.

“We had a good turn out and the kids are having fun,” Rachel Ziebell, senior and member of the women’s cross-country and track and field teams, said. “I’ve seen a lot of smiling faces tonight.”

Warrior Fun Night was part of the athletic department’s Community Appreciation Weekend, which ran from Sept. 5 to 8.

“It gives the community a chance to get to know our student-athletes and interact with them,” Jennifer Flowers, athletic department liaison for the committee, said.

The weekend kicked off with Thursday’s home Warrior football game against Bemidji State University.
