Athens Drive’s Hoops 4 Hope still going strong

February 18, 2013
Tri-Nine Conference



RALEIGH - Athens Drive senior Taylor Cesarski is used to having to step up in the clutch on the basketball court.

Cesarski, the starting point guard for the Jaguars, is also a clutch player for her community – a community turning out and supporting the school’s annual Hoops 4 Hope girls’ basketball game more with each passing year.

Athens Drive hosted its sixth annual Hoops 4 Hope game – a fundraiser for breast cancer research in which all of the game’s proceeds go directly to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund – against Apex on Friday.

Athens is on its third coach in six years, but that hasn’t affected the event, which has always been run by the students.

Four-year basketball standout Blair Williams handed over the student-organizer reins to Cesarski for the last two seasons.

“When we started we had no idea how much success we would have; it just grew and grew,” Williams said. “It’s incredible to see how many people are jumping into the cause, as more and more people are affected by breast cancer.”
