JHS SOFTBALL TEAM HOSTING CANCER AWARENESS NIGHT

The Jefferson softball team will hold a cancer awareness night Oct. 7 at 5:30 p.m. when it faces region opponent Chestatee at home.

One of the team’s softball parents, Gary Saxon, father of Rayvn Saxon, is battling colon cancer.

“That’s to promote cancer awareness in general, but we’ll talk a little bit extra about Rayvn’s dad and what he’s going through,” Jefferson softball coach Kacie Bostwick said recently.

A Jefferson Elementary School student, who is also battling cancer, will throw out the first pitch.
