There were few dry eyes in the house at the Moe and Gene Johnson High School softball field April 6 as the Lehman Lobos and Johnson Jaguars softball teams rallied together in support of a Hays CISD employee who is battling cancer.
At the conclusion of the April 6 district game, both teams joined together for a quick photo to show support for Johnson High Athletic Trainer Amber Jones, who earlier this year was diagnosed with breast cancer and is currently combatting the disease. Along with the show of support, members of the Lehman High softball team prior to the contest offered a signed softball to Jones that had numerous words of encouragement and well wishes for her fight. Meanwhile, the Jaguar softball team also had Jones’ initials (AJ) and a pink ribbon, symbolizing the fight against breast cancer, drawn behind home plate.
Ultimately, Johnson High came away with a 7-3 win, which kept the Jags in the chase for a possible playoff berth with only a handful of games remaining. Johnson hosted Kerrville Tivy Tuesday and closes its regular season at home against Boerne Champion April 23. Lehman hosts Dripping Springs at home Friday, followed by a home game against San Antonio Veterans Memorial April 23.
