     The 2019 Cancer Classic  basketball game was held on November 19 at Armuchee High School. This game was dedicated to people who have fought cancer. Before the game started, The Lady Indians presented a certificate of someone they knew who had cancer. The team also wore pink shooting shirts and pink socks to honor those who have battled cancer. The Armuchee girl’s basketball team played a tough game against Gordon Lee. The Lady Indians wound up winning the game with a close score of 39-41.

Two people that were recognized at this game were Coach Wadell, who was the first girl’s Basketball coach at Armuchee High and Macy, who is a sophomore at Gordon Lee high school. It was very valuable that Macy was able to come to get recognized and see her team play.

What was really inspiring about Wadell being presented, is that to this day she still competes in senior games that she loves. All of Waddell’s former players came to honor her as she walked on the court to be noticed. Coach Wadell came up with the motto, “I can. I will. End of story.” This game was a great opportunity for people to come to watch the Lady Indians and notice those who have fought cancer. By hosting this game, the community raised $700 to the Floyd Cancer Center.
