Wednesday night at TL Hanna was about more than a basketball game.
Prior to tipoff, Hanna and Easley Girls Basketball Teams locked arms in a circle at mid-court. Hanna wanted to show its support for Easley senior Sydney Clark who is battling advanced Leukemia. Clark found out about the diagnosis in December and is currently undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
The Lady Jackets presented a #21 TL Hanna jersey (Sydney’s number) to Easley with signatures showing support. While at mid-court, an Easley player was able to call Sydney at the hospital and show her the jersey through FaceTime. It was a touching moment for everyone involved and a reminder for the two teams that every day is a gift not to be taken for granted.
