High school athletes competed Tuesday night in Fairmont for a good cause.

Fairmont Senior High's girls lacrosse team hosted Wheeling Park in their second annual Lacrosse Against Cancer Game at East-West Stadium.  Both teams formed a "circle of hope" at midfield before the game to remember friends and loved ones lost to cancer.  The girls each wore different colored ribbons in their hair to represent the different forms of the disease. 
The team saved money throughout the season and sold t-shirts to help raise funds for the American Cancer Society.
"Us as coaches, we love to coach lacrosse but we're also trying to build character and leadership and other things and it does. These girls really showed that they want to be a part of, and help the community out, and the girls are on board with it. They love doing this kind of stuff and it makes the program look great, it makes the sport look great and it helps our community too so we're tickled to death that the girls take so much pride in it," said Jonathan Cain, FSHS Girl's Lacrosse Head Coach.

Country Roads Physical Therapy helped sponsor the game.  If you want to buy a t-shirt for $10, e-mail USMCBrig63@aol.com
