It was a sea of pink in honor of Coaches Against Cancer night Thursday, Feb. 27 when the Lady Panthers basketball team beat Plum City 47-43.

The team wore pink headbanks, pink socks and Coaches Against Cancer T-shirts to show their support.

Proceeds from T-shirt sales, raffle tickets, donations and a half-time shootout went to “Love for Loenser,” to help out sixth-grade teacher Karen Loenser who is battling cancer, and the ALIVE group, which supports families in the district who are dealing with a tragedy or tough times.
