West Fork and Hampton-Dumont duked it out on the hardwood for the annual Coaches vs. Cancer game on Jan. 25. The Warhawk boys’ and girls’ teams raised $4,369, while their Bulldog counterparts raised $2,256.50.

On Saturday Jan. 25, Hampton-Dumont and West Fork battled it out on the basketball court and in fundraising. With funds still coming in, we have raised a total of $10,733.77 at this point.

     Both schools did some fundraising prior to the basketball games. Many of the basketball players participated in a free throw contest where they got pledges for how many baskets they made out of 50. Fundraising totals for the two schools were: Hampton-Dumont ╨Free Throws and Alumni Basketball Tournament for a total of $2,256.50; and West Fork Free Throws, $4,094, and a cake auction, $275, for a total of $4,369.

     We have not been able to award the traveling trophy at this time because funds are still coming in from the free throws.
