Liberty student Kelsey Thompson was announced as the grand prize winner of the inaugural Fantastic Fan Promotion, during halftime of Saturday's men's basketball game versus Coastal Carolina. As a result, she will enjoy a "Cruise for Two," valued at $1,000.

Liberty Athletics teamed up with Wade Fowler Travel (wfowlertravel.com) this past season, in an effort to continue to boost attendance at the Lady Flames' home volleyball matches. Fans were given at least one opportunity during each home match to register for the grand prize drawing.

The Fantastic Fan Promotion helped Liberty pace the Big South Conference in home volleyball attendance this past season. Such support propelled the Lady Flames to a 9-2 record at the Vines Center in 2009.

Just prior to making the Fantastic Fan announcement, Liberty Athletics recognized head volleyball coach Shane Pinder for his 100th career win. Pinder recorded the milestone victory Nov. 7, in a 3-0 sweep of Big South foe Gardner-Webb. The sixth-year head coach then selected Thompson's name as the Fantastic Fan winner.
