The Hamilton Heights Girls Basketball team continued their winning streak at the inaugural Girls Varsity Pink Out on Saturday at the Husky Dome. The team netted the win against the Westfield Shamrocks 44-41. Saturday’s game brought the Lady Huskies to 12-0 for the season. The Shamrocks team joined in the effort by wearing their white and pink uniforms and the pink game ball was in play. While attendance was limited in accordance to Indiana State Department of Health guidelines, the recognition of local breast cancer warriors will be rescheduled for half-time later in the season.
Between the t-shirt sales and chuck a duck fundraisers, the team raised more than $2,200 for the IWIN Foundation. Event organizer, Jillian Osswald, Hamilton Heights senior, said, “it’s a moment I wish I could relive. The support was tremendous and we really appreciate everyone stepping up and helping us out with this special awareness event. To top it off, we had a tough but fun game!”
Special thanks are extended to the Hamilton Heights Girls Basketball team, athletic department, Beaver Materials (event sponsor), Erika’s Place, 10 West, Jeff McCorkle at Farmers Mutual Insurance Agency in Tipton, and to all those who contributed in some way to make this event impactful.
