On March 28 Nederland High School and Lumberton High School Softball teams joined together to Strike Out Cancer. The event was a fund raiser for the American Cancer Society.
So many lives in our area have been touched by cancer. The event began with a memorial walk around the bases by both survivors and family members.
One of Nederland softball's own is currently fighting her own battle with thyroid cancer. Victoria Garza threw out the first pitch of the game, supported by her team mates. It was a hugely emotional moment for all involved.
