Marquette Basketball Helps Tornado Victims in Washington, Illinois

By: Marquette Catholic High School Last Updated: December 3, 2013

The Marquette Catholic High School boys basketball team traveled to Washington, Illinois during their Thanksgiving break to participate in the State Farm Classic Tournament just nine days after the town was devastated by tornadoes.

The Blazers brought with them cold weather gear that they collected during a recent scrimmage event. Wearing orange (the color of Washington High School) Marquette T-shirts with "WE GOT YOUR BACK WASHINGTON" plastered on the back, the team presented their gift to the community prior to the start of their contest.
