AC hosts Play 4 Kay game

The Allegheny College women’s basketball team’s annual Play 4 Kay game is today at the David V. Wise Center against North Coast Athletic Conference rival Oberlin.

The Play 4 Kay initiative has raised over $2.8 million to support women’s cancer research since its inception in 2007. Partnering with the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, the Play 4 Kay initiative invites teams from all over the nation to raise money for scientific research and other objectives in order to help win the fight against breast cancer. The fund is in honor of Kay Yow, a former North Carolina State University head women’s basketball coach, who passed away in 2009.

“We are excited to participate in the Play 4 Kay initiative again this season,” said Lady Gators head coach Kate Costanzo. “We have worked hard to raise money before Wednesday’s game and will be able to donate more money than we ever have before. Our team goal was to raise $1,000 for women’s cancers and we have almost hit that goal. We hope our fans show up in pink and help us raise awareness for the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.”

As part of the day’s festivities, both the men’s and women’s basketball teams will also take time to honor the members of the Allegheny faculty that have played an integral part in their work off the court. Each athlete has been offered the opportunity to present a member of the faculty on Wednesday, as the men’s squad will present their faculty members at halftime of the women’s game, with the women presenting their selected faculty at halftime of the men’s contest.

The Gators will tip off against the Yeowomen at 6 p.m. with the men’s game against Oberlin slated to tip off at 8 p.m.

Poll

The latest proposed expansion plan for the Crawford County Courthouse potentially would eliminate the former Tarr Mansion on Diamond Park to make room for a county administrative building. Should the 1860 mansion be demolished?

Leave it alone because it’s historic.
Try to incorporate it into the proposed expansion.
It’s too far gone to save, but it’s memory may be preserved with an artifacts and photo display within the proposed courthouse complex.
