Second 'Kilts for a Cause Game' to pit West York's field hockey team vs. football team
The West York field hockey team has again challenged the West York football team to the second annual "Kilts for a Cause Game."
The contest is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Monday on the field hockey practice field, which is beside the main field.
The Bulldogs' field hockey team, along with its head coach, Amanda Steigleman, has challenged the school's football team, and its new head coach, Jeremy Jones, to a field hockey game to benefit the York Rescue Mission's Women and Children's Shelter.
This year, three West York field hockey juniors (Erin Chubb, Jena Bixler and Julia Gibson) have coordinated the event as their graduation project. It was their decision to choose the charity in an effort to raise awareness about domestic violence.
Both teams will collect and donate items such as diapers, wipes, baby food and personal hygiene items such as shampoo, tooth brushes and soap. The team with the most donated items will start the game with a one-point advantage.
Steigleman said she is looking forward to seeing the new head football coach wearing a kilt.
The field hockey team won last year's contest, 5-0.
For information about the game, call Steigleman at (717) 792-2796, ext. 1004, or email AMSteigleman@wyasd.k12.pa.us.
