The University of Denver's Division of Athletics hosted its annual Pioneers Pep Rally on Tuesday night in Magness Arena.

After the historic year athletics had last year, incoming freshmen were introduced to all the coaches and a season recap video from the past year. 

Pioneer student-athletes Kate Knott (women's lacrosse) and Christian Mackey (basketball) emceed the hour-length celebration. 

The Pioneer Pep Rally featured video clips, contests, free gear and musical entertainment from the DU pep band. 

Prizes handed out included t-shirts, hats and other gear. The grand prize was a smart TV. 

Coaches from all DU athletic teams, as well as student government, club sports and intramural sport leaders all tossed out gear to the attendees. 

Student-athletes and volunteers have been working with the new students since Monday, welcoming them to campus and helping them move in.
