Lawrenceburg head basketball coach John Blackwell turned out in a bright orange suit for the Tigers’ Coaches Vs. Cancer game fund-raiser against arch-rival South Dearborn Friday, Feb. 21 - while SD coach Kevin Reinhardt donned all-red attire. The benefit event, and multiple festivities surrounding it, succeeded in raising a whopping $15,022.22 for the American Cancer Society at both schools. The final $22.22 donation by Blackwell and wife Nicole, signified their tribute, via her jersey number, to former Tiger and Mount St. Joseph University player Lauren Hill. The drive also honored former Lawrenceburg teacher and coach Steve Blackwell, John’s father, who lost his battle with the disease almost exactly 20 years earlier. “Thanks to everyone for coming together like we did!” the LHS coach tweeted afterward.
