KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - It was a terrific day Tuesday to be outside and take in some softball, but it wasn’t just a game over at Webb School of Knoxville as the Lady Spartans held their annual Strike Out Cancer event.

“Letting them realize early there’s more important things in life and that they can battle for causes just like we can,” shared Webb head softball coach David Moore,

It was Webb School hosting Concord Christian Tuesday as players from both teams held up the name of someone they know affected by the disease and for the Lady Lions that included one of their players.

Former Webb Softball coach Didie Montgomery, who started this event, suffered a devastating loss to cancer and as much as anyone, appreciates the support from the fans and players alike, ”They are playing for something bigger than themselves, they are making a difference.”

The Lady Spartans went on to win 5-3 in a game where really, everyone comes out on top says coach Moore, ”Coach Montgomery and coach Skinner have been a big supporter of this cause the last several years I want to keep it going and keep the momentum going towards that fight against cancer.”

Proceeds from the game will go to benefit the American Cancer Society. Congrats to both Concord Christian and Webb School on a job well done.
