Triton softball team raising funds for JDRF

May 9, 2014

Triton varsity and JV softball teams display their “Strike Out” T-shirts being sold as a fundraiser for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Kneeling in front with bats are the four graduating seniors who spearheaded the project: Allyson Brown, Courtney Zentz, Jenae Kreft, and Mallorie Jennings.

BOURBON — “Strike out” can be either positive or negative depending upon whether or not your team is at bat. In the case of the Triton softball team, it is a positive slogan aimed at stamping out juvenile diabetes. Triton currently has five students enrolled who are Type I diabetics.
As a community service project the four graduating seniors on the varsity team are leading the effort to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) by selling special T-shirts which say “Strike Out Juvenile Diabetes.” The shirts are on sale for $10 and may be ordered from the Triton High School office before May 15, according to varsity coach Steve McBride. All proceeds go to JDRF.
The players have also created an incentive by placing the name of everyone ordering a shirt into a drawing. The donated prizes include three gift certificates for Bourbon Street Pizza, three for Subway in Bourbon, three for Tony’s Grill in Goshen, and four Silver Hawks tickets.
In addition, the week of May 19 is “Orange Week” for the JDRF color orange. Anyone wearing their “Strike Out” T-shirt to a home game that week will receive free popcorn at the concession stand.
The Triton varsity and JV softball players urge the public to support this effort to “strike out juvenile diabetes.
