Titans continue coaches vs. cancer game tradition

On November 13, the Gibson Southern Lady Titans suited up in their pink uniforms to play Heritage Hills in their Coaches vs. Cancer game. The Lady Titans try to do everything they can to raise awareness and help their community in every way possible. 

“We realize, as a staff and as a program, the importance of helping out as many people as we can,” head coach Kyle Brasher said. “We’re very fortunate to be able to play this game of basketball and want to be as giving with our talents as we can.”

The Lady Titans held a social media raffle where people were able to donate money and have a chance to win gift cards. The total ended up at around $500 to support the American Cancer Society.

“It’s always good to give back, especially during these times of uncertainty,” junior Loren Stoll said.

Not only do the Lady Titans themselves raise cancer awareness, but they also get the opposing team involved. Both teams wore warm-up shirts to bring attention to the A.C.S.

“These types of events bring teams together,” senior Carson Kruse said.

Not only was it Coaches vs. Cancer night, but it was also senior night. The five senior players and senior manager were all recognized for being a part of the program, and for all the hard work they have put into their team.

By the end of the night, both the JV and varsity teams had pulled out a win against Heritage Hills, but that wasn’t the most impressive part. The fact that the Lady Titans brought their supportive community together to raise awareness for A.C.S. is a feat of its own.

The Lady Titan basketball program always likes to raise awareness to important topics, and help out their community. This shows their commitment to instilling altruistic behaviors in their players, and showing that life is bigger than basketball.
