Kings Mountain to honor Yow

The Kings Mountain girls' basketball team will be wearing light pink shoe laces for the remainder of the season.

Coach Candace Fleming said a statement will be read at each game, including:

"It is to honor the late Kay Yow, the N.C. State coach who recently lost her long battle with breast cancer, all others who have fought battles with breast cancer, and those who are currently fighting battles with breast cancer."

"Kay Yow was a pioneer in leading women’s basketball to where we are today. Coach Yow was not only a role model in women’s basketball but for all women in athletics. "
