RSU Fight Song Unveiled at Hillcats Senior Night

On a night when Rogers State University recognized the most accomplished athletes in its basketball program's young history, a new tradition was unveiled.

The RSU Fight Song, with new lyrics written by RSU employee Yvonne Pace, debuted on Thursday. A Senior Night crowd, announced at 1,044, joined the RSU cheerleaders and pep band to sing the fight song for the first time ever, during intermission at the Claremore Expo Center.

In January, RSU held a contest asking members of the campus community to write lyrics for a new fight song. Out of almost 20 submissions, Pace's lyrics were selected by a panel of RSU faculty, staff, administrators and students.

Pace won a $250 gift card to Barnes and Noble and will be credited on all future printings of the RSU Fight Song.
