Fun for a cause at Coaches vs. Cancer

C oaches from two schools took to the court Monday night to have a little fun for a good cause. In front of a packed house the second coaches versus cancer game brought a team from the Fort Ann school district to take on Granville coaches.

Thanks to a last minute buzzer beater, Granville coaches came from behind to win, 59-58. The real winner was the effort to raise money to fight cancer; about $1,000 was raised Monday night.

Granville coaches included: Steve Palmer, Jen Goff, Chris Fuller, Geoff Lioacono, Matt Hicks, O.C. West, Sean Boyd, Lance Jordan, Dan Brayton, Aris Allen, Nick Healy and coach Duane Dodge.

From Fort Ann: Kevin Nassivera, Justin Nassivera, Larry Bailey, Grant Sharrow, Tara Tharp, Tim Loso, Andy Strainer, Dan Ward and Jim Allen with coach Brandon “the mayor” Nassivera. Officials were Dan Brown and Mike Resetar.
