Laramie Plainsmen Host Fan Appreciation and Cancer Awareness Game
It may be the first home game of the season, but the Laramie Plainsmen want to thank everyone that comes together to make Plainsmen Basketball so special. Laramie makes its' home debut against Green River Saturday afternoon at 3:30. In addition, the boys program is hoping you can help out those battling cancer. Today's games will be broadcast online only. To listen to the broadcast, go to https://www.network1sports.com/station/kowbnet.
The Laramie Boys Basketball Booster Club is having a theme for every home game. This first one is honoring all of the students, family, friends and spirit groups that support LHS basketball.
Laramie Coach Chuck Kern said, "We really want the community to feel like they're a part of this team. Sometimes that's not always the case, especially when you only have a few games at home. We really want to recognize the band, the dance team, the cheerleaders and the Plainsmen Singers."
Kern said the cancer awareness is actually a bigger thing. "It's something we've done in the past for a specific student, but this year we're doing it for a local entity that helps out to pay bills when people have to go into treatment. Those bills are kind of hard to pay sometimes."
The money being raised will go to "Gifts for Living," a local non-profit assistance fund.
Join the team for action at the Laramie High School main gymnasium Saturday. The Laramie Lady Plainsmen game versus Green River begins at 1:45 pm, while the Plainsmen game will start at 3:30 pm. David Settle and VerDon Hoopes will call the action of the online only broadcast.
Wear maroon or pink or both to show your support for the Plainsmen and cancer survivors.
