On February 1st, the Rams took the gym against the Wahlert Golden Eagles for the 10th annual Pink Out basketball game.

The girls’ team won 58-42 and the boys’ team won 67-36.

The game was played in honor of Dubuque Senior special education teacher, Amy Schroeder and her family. Amy’s husband, Ben, has been diagnosed with Glioblastoma. Glioblastoma is an aggressive form of brain cancer. Ben has received many sessions of radiation and chemotherapy at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

The Pink Out game began in February of 2010 after Coach Wendell Eimers’ wife, April, was diagnosed with breast cancer. This started a tradition for the basketball teams. Every year, the team hosts a game and fundraiser in support of a member of the Ram Fam who is dealing with cancer.

This year’s game raised $1700 for Schroeder and her family.
