Calvin Head is Russellville High School Athletic Director as well as girls basketball coach.

Greetings from the RHS Athletic Department:

Next week we have several activities and events taking place at our two girls/boys doubleheader home basketball games. We also have several fun activities going on throughout the school week in preparation for our Homecoming games and events on Friday night.

Tuesday, Jan. 27 will be our “Pink Out” game as we host Springfield High School. All Panther Fans are asked to wear Pink to the game that night in support of Breast Cancer Awareness. During half-time of each game the RHS cheerleaders will be passing buckets through the stands for financial contributions that will be going to the American Cancer Society. We will also be having a special performance in between the two games by the Cheer Katz from Logan County Gymnastics.

On Friday, Jan. 30 the RHS Panthers and Lady Panthers will host South Warren for a girls/boys doubleheader matchup starting at 6 p.m. This will be our homecoming game. The homecoming festivities will take place in between the girls and boys games.

In addition to the homecoming activities, this game will also be used as our Lymphoma Awareness game in support of Dillon Porter, a current RHS student, who was diagnosed with Lymphoma this past fall and is currently taking treatments. In support of Dillon and his family and, to increase Lymphoma Awareness, the RHS athletic department is planning a "Green Out" for this game. All Panther fans are asked to wear Lime Green to the game that night. Green “glow in the dark” necklaces will be handed out to Panther fans upon their arrival!!!

This is going to be a very special week for RHS basketball, as we play in support and awareness of cancer and the many lives that it has affected in our schools and community. We are also excited to celebrate our homecoming activities and events throughout the week and the recognition of our students on Friday night.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the games next week!

Go Panthers!!!!!
