The girls’ varsity basketball team will host the annual Pink Ribbon game on Friday, Feb. 10. Coach Dawn Hahn started this event around 14 years ago after her mother passed away from cancer. The game will start off with girls’ varsity playing, followed by girls’ JV, boys’ varsity and lastly boys’ JV. The girls’ varsity basketball team will play at 5:30 p.m.

“The game itself isn’t any different, but it’s a different atmosphere,” junior Maggie Hillmann said.

Posters personally made by the basketball team are handed out to members of the audience who either have or once had cancer. The posters are then hung up all around the gym in honor of those people. They will also sell shirts to raise money for cancer awareness.

“It really puts a focus on the fact that basketball isn’t just a game,” sophomore Gabby Delarue said. “You’re always playing for somebody.”
