The Greenwich High School and Brien McMahon softball teams took the field for Monday’s game sporting a different look. Orange was the color of choice for the Cardinals, while the Senators donned teal shirts. A Strike Out Cancer event was held at Brien McMahon Monday and the team’s wore the colors to show their support.
Greenwich wore orange shirts with the name Nicole printed on the back to honor GHS student Nicole Graham. A junior, Graham was diagnosed with leukemia in September. As my colleague Lisa Chamoff wrote in a Greenwich Time article last week, Graham has made an inspiring turnaround in her battle against leukemia. A three-sport athlete, Graham is participating in drills with the Cardinals’ lacrosse team and is there cheering for her teammates each game.
Monday’s event, which included a bake sale and food booth, raised, more than $1,200 for the American Cancer Society.
