The Oak Ridge Lady Wildcats and Wildcats battled the Knox Central Lady Bobcats and Bobcats on Friday night in Wildcat Arena. Both sets of Wildcats left their home stage victorious against their district rivals on Autism Awareness Night.
Lady Wildcat head coach David Scott discussed Autism Awareness Night and its significance after the game.
â€œItâ€™s part of our responsibility to get the word out,â€ Scott said. â€œWeâ€™ve been blessed in Oak Ridge. We have some great teachers and therapistsâ€¦Itâ€™s (autism) a number thatâ€™s going up and not going down. The more word we can get out there that the autism spectrum is so large…Thereâ€™s a lot to it, and no two are the same. Anytime we can get the word out, we appreciate that opportunity. To have people respond really means a lot to us.â€
At the halftime of each game, fans were encouraged to come down to the court and pay $1 for a half-court shot contest. These proceeds are going to autism awareness foundations.
