Coaches vs. Cancer

On January 9, the varsity boys' and girls' basketball teams played at home against Roncalli for the annual Coaches vs. Cancer game. Throughout the game, attendees were able to support the Beech Grove Schools Relay for Life team by purchasing food and merchandise items. Through the sale of these items $1,500 was raised.

In addition, five families were recognized for their battles with cancer. Personal stories about each family were told, and two of the families who are currently battling cancer were presented with checks to help with the financial burden of their fight.

Throughout the week before the game and at the game, students were able to participate in a ribbon competition. Students were able to purchase a ribbon for $1. The class that purchased the most ribbons was able to pie some of the teachers in the face at half time of the boys' game. The sophomore class won this competition.
