City High dedicates Liberty Games to mental health awareness

While City High and Liberty’s basketball doubleheader was an exciting occasion for all in attendance, it was not the most important aspect of the evening.

Billed as “Mental Health Awareness Night,” the girls’ basketball teams at City High and Liberty showed their advocacy for change in a number of ways.

City High players wore shirts that read “Needed you tomorrow.” Liberty wore “OS14” shirts to honor beloved student Owen Skelly, who died by suicide the previous year.

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

Liberty coach Jaime Brandt said the opportunity to spread that message was extremely important.
