City High, Liberty dedicates games for mental health awareness

Although the City High and Liberty basketball header was an exciting occasion for all in attendance, it wasn’t the most important aspect of the evening.

A “Mental Health Awareness Night” is announced, and the City High and Liberty girls’ basketball teams show their call for change in multiple ways.

City High’s players wore T-shirts reading “Tomorrow Needs You”. Liberty wore “OS14” jerseys in honor of beloved student Owen Skelly, who died by suicide last year.

Before the game, players and coaches from both teams gathered in their half of the field and held together for a moment of silence for those who have been affected or lost their lives due to mental health struggles.

Liberty coach Jaime Brandt said the opportunity to spread that message was of the utmost importance.
