Tyler Towne, Sports Editor/Personality

IVCC celebrated John Ossola Night Feb. 6 when IVCC took on the Highland Community College Cougars.

Ossola, an alumnus and former basketball player at LPO Junior College, has become an IVCC basketball super fan. He attends nearly all home games and most road contests.

A graduate of Hall High School, Ossola has a nearly 60-year affiliation with IVCC. He was a starter on the 1959 LPO team that advanced to the National Junior College Athletic Association tournament in Hutchinson, Kan.

The IVCC Women’s Basketball team presented Ossola with several different gifts, after their victory, and he was applauded by all fans in attendance. The full recognition ceremony can be found on the IV Leader YouTube page, at the conclusion of the women’s contest against Highland.
