On Monday, April 24th, the Saxton and South Ocean Middle School Girl’s Softball teams teamed up for a Mental Health Awareness game. The goal of the event was to bring attention to the importance of mental health, educate our athletes on strategies to help themselves and others with their mental health, and leave them with the knowledge to spread throughout their schools and community during the month of May and beyond.
After the game, we exchanged ribbons, bracelets, and written messages of positive encouragement to show our support for each other throughout the rest of the season.
This is the second year in a row that Coach Maloney and I have held this event, and we hope to continue to do so within the coming years!
