Marquette Athletics announced Saturday that two students will win a blue or gold Marquette-themed Smart Car as part of the 2008-09 Fanatics Rewards Program. The Smart Cars are courtesy of Bergstrom Automotive and have a retail value of about $17,000 each.

Saturday's announcement highlighted the annual New Student Pep Rally, an event designed to introduce incoming Marquette students to the university's athletic traditions. New students were taught the Marquette Alma Mater and "Ring Out Ahoya" and learned about upcoming events and how they can win prizes through the rewards program.

Marquette coaches Pati Rolf, Markus Roeders and Stan Anderson then addressed the new students, stressing their importance in creating a home field advantage. Men's and women's soccer and women's volleyball student-athletes also mingled through the crowd, distributing free backpacks and signing autographs.

The Fanatics Rewards Program is an incentive program that rewards Marquette students for their attendance at soccer, volleyball and basketball home games. Students can accumulate entries into the end-of-the-year drawing by attending events throughout the year.

One of the two Smart Cars will be awarded at the final men's basketball game of the season and the other will be won by a lucky Fanatic attending the last women's basketball game of the year.
