January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month and for the second year in a row, the Van Wert Lady Cougars and Lincolnview Lady Lancers, in conjunction with the YWCA of Van Wert County, are competing to see which team can raise the most funds to benefit victims of human trafficking. "Stop Human Trafficking" t-shirts were sold during the month of December, but donations will still be accepted on behalf of the teams at the home Van Wert vs. Lincolnview girls basketball game this Saturday, January 11 at 11:30 a.m. Donations will be taken until the start of JV halftime. No late donations will be accepted so be sure to support your lady Cougars before the final buzzer of JV's second quarter.
Last year, less than $5 separated the two teams and Lincolnview came away with the traveling trophy. Will the the Lady Cougars swipe it from them this year? The winner will be revealed between the JV and Varsity game this Saturday!
