Paw Paw tennis to host “Rally for the Cure” fundraising tourney Saturday

   PAW PAW - On Saturday, April 28, the Paw Paw girl’s tennis team will host its annual Rally For the Cure.
   The Lady Redskins will welcome teams from Coldwater and Marshall high schools for the tournament, which will be played in a round-robin format with four flights of singles and four flights of doubles. Points will be awarded to each team based on its success in each flight.
   A ninth flight will be based on donations made for Susan G. Komen in the name of each team and will count towards the overall team standings. The school with the most donations will receive two points, second most donations, one point.
   The Komen foundation has played a critical role in advancing the fight against breast cancer, helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors.
   Anyone interested in just making a donation can mail it to PPHS Girls Tennis Coach Warner Offord III, at Paw Paw High School, 30609 Red Arrow Hwy., Paw Paw, MI, 49079, by Monday, April 30, 2018. Donations will be accepted  during the tournament at the donation table at the PPHS Tennis Courts. Cash donations will be accepted; checks should be made payable to Paw Paw Public Schools.
   PPHS will be offering a concession stand of water, Powerade, soda pop, hot dogs, candy, popcorn, etc.
   In the event of inclement weather, all attempts will be made to delay the QUAD until courts are playable. Matches may be shortened to save time.
   “This tournament is for a great cause, for everyone, including myself, who has been touched by this disease,” said PPHS Boys Varsity Coach Matthew Baleja. “For me, it was my mother who lost her battle to breast cancer on May 4, 1997. So, I hope we all can support our local team and Susan G. Komen in its effort to research and fight all types of cancer.”
   The coaches encourage fans to support the cause by decking out in pink shirts, shoe laces, hair ribbons,  and more.
