The WHS girls’ basketball team defeated Weston 51-37 this past Friday. The game was a fundraiser to support Coaches vs. Cancer, a partnership between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches.

The game is an annual event at WHS held in honor of Jim Griffin, a former guidance counselor and girls’ freshman basketball team coach who passed away in 2012 from cancer.

The money from the concession stand and the T-shirts that were sold will go to support the American Cancer Society. There was a halftime presentation about Coaches vs. Cancer. There was also a table set up supporting Relay for Life, a fundraising event also run by the American Cancer Society, which will be held in the spring.

“It’s very exciting. It’s a wonderful chance for us to have some fun and also remember Mr.Griffin,” Assistant Principal Allyson Mizoguchi said.
