Predators pep rally held at Stoner Creek Elementary School

MT. JULIET, Tenn. -

Stoner Creek Elementary School in Mt. Juliet displayed their Nashville Predators spirit during a pep rally Tuesday afternoon.

The Predators hosted the rally as a reward to the school for having the most Predators Pride.

"The Preds hosted a contest to see what school in Middle Tennessee had the most Preds Pride and they submitted this photo that showed the entire bleachers behind me filled with kids… Actually you can hear them now, just glowing with Preds pride," Mike Dargin, director of youth marketing for the Predators, said.

The students learned about hockey equipment, helped color a Predators banner, competed in relay races and even played street hockey with Nash, the Predators' mascot.

The Predators are used to going to schools.  They went to over 40 different physical education classes this year with their Hockey Rules Program.

"We present the PE class with some hockey, so we literally show up and take over their classes for a couple of hours and put the sticks in kids hands and let them play the game of street hockey," Dargin said.

The students were not the only ones having a good time Tuesday.

"A lot of us are huge fans. We have season ticket holders [and] we have people who go [to the games] when they can, anything they can do to get down to the game," fourth grade teacher Jorie Gerik said.

The Predators take on the Detroit Red Wings in game four of the 2012 Western Conference Quarterfinal series Tuesday evening at 6:30 p.m.
