The Blanchester High School girls basketball team hosted a shoot-a-thon Nov. 22 in honor of Lauren Hill, the sophomore college basketball player who is battling brain cancer while still playing for the College of Mt. St. Joseph. Each girl shot 100 layups with their less-dominant hand, which donors were able to pledge an amount per basket made or a flat amount regardless of number made. The girls also designed T-shirts through Quali-Tee Design in Wilmington and sold them to raise money for brain cancer research. The girls raised $1,500 with all proceeds given to The Cure Starts Now Foundation. In the photos, Ladycats basketball players form a gray ribbon in honor of brain cancer research and show off the back of the T-shirts with Layups4Lauren and the No. 22, which is Hill’s number as a member of the MSJ basketball team.
