First Annual Orange Out at IHS to Support Local Athlete
A night to bring the community together in support and rally around one of our own recently battling leukemia . . . On Tuesday, October 4, the Independence High School Lady Devils Volleyball Team will be hosting the Blue Streaks of Magnificat High School. This will not just be a night of competitive volleyball, but a night to bring together the community to rally around one of the Lady Devils sophomore volleyball players, Mia Coudriet.

Over the summer, Mia’s world as a teenager was flipped upside down after being diagnosed with Acute Lymphoid Leukemia. Mia was a two-sport varsity starter and letter winner in 2015 for the Lady Devils Volleyball & Basketball teams.

The Junior Varsity game begins at 5pm and the Varsity game begins at 6:15pm in the Independence High School gymnasium located at 6001 Archwood Drive in Independence. The goal of the evening is to pack the gym in orange in support of Mia and the Leukemia Research Foundation. There will be raffles, prizes, giveaways, face painting and sign making. All proceeds raised from the evening will benefit the Leukemia Research Foundation. The team is asking people to post pictures using the hashtag #MiaStrong.
