RIO GRANDE, Ohio — The University of Rio Grande is giving its alumni and the general public a chance to own a piece of the school’s athletic history.

The school is currently selling the padded, folding chairs used by the volleyball and the men’s and women’s basketball programs since 1993. Cost is $200 per chair and around 20 chairs are available.

Proceeds from the sale of the used chairs will go toward the purchase of new chairs.

The chairs that are available to the public were a part of nearly 600 Rio Grande victories and were used by more than 40 Scholar Athletes and six NAIA All-Americans during their time of service.

For more information, or to purchase one of the chairs, contact Rio Grande athletic director Jeff Lanham at (740) 245-7485.
