This Saturday is Knoxville’s Coaches vs. Cancer Night. Girls Coach Jim Utiermarkt says this has gone from being a school event to a community event as Knoxville has risen up and supported this cause. Utiermarkt also hopes that the girls get more than just playing and trying to win a basketball game. He hopes they look at this as a service project and that there are other things that are important than just the game itself. This year every member of the girls basketball squad has donated at least one item for the silent auction with many of the girls donating something they purschased themselves. Utiermarkt adds they sold over 600 T-Shirts and fans can pick up their order starting Tuesday night at the home games with Oskaloosa.
