14 SPORTS THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2014 Junior hitch girls get new basketball uniforms, BY KURTIS J. WOOD sports@qvpr com Anthony and Tina Gonzales spearheaded an effort to get new uniforms for the Quincy Junior High School seventh- and eighth-grade girls bas- ketball teams. They saw a need and quickly found out the junior high did not have the funds to replace the two-decade-old jerseys. They also found out there were times girls had to borrow shorts from the boys team. So they rolled up their sleeves and went to work finding the donations, ordering uniforms and putting numbers on the uniforms. Anthony said the community was happy to help. He raised more than $4,300 dollars for the 70 uniforms, both tops and bottoms. Almost double what he needed. The rest of the funds are earmarked for the football team. "They were real receptive," said Anthony. "We ordered enough to outfit the entire seventh- and eighth-grade girls basketball teams." In the past, the junior high was able to rely on their magazine drive to fund uniform replacement. But that was then and this is now. The annual mag- azine drive used to gross upward of $40,000 and now tops out at $18,000. The school realizes about half that money. "We've been struggling with our magazine and gift drive the last few years and have not had the profit for uniform replacement," said longtime principal Scott Ramsey. "17-18 years ago we made $35,000-40,000 but that was before internet. So we added gift sales, but we als0 lost a third of our sales force when the sixth -graders went to Monument." Ramsey also said they have smaller fundrais- ers, such as selling concessions at games, selling PE uniforms and Valentine grams. For the record, they do not charge to get into junior high sporting events. With the need established, the community stepped up and found funding from the Millie Jones Charitable Trust Foundation, Columbia Ridge Cattle Company, Kissler Enterprises, Clif- tonLarsonAllen, Garrison Homes, Crites Seed Company, Quincy Heating & A C, Tobin Elec- tric, Quincy Hardware & Lumber, Terry and Tri- cia Lubach, Quincy Farm Chemicals, Beckemeier Construction, Bierlink Farms and two anonymous donors. Gonzales said their donation was the time and labor put into raising the funds, ordering the uniforms and pressing numbers on the 70 uniforms. "The girls were so happy," Anthony said. "We were glad to contribute." THE QUINCY VALLEY Post-Redi00,ter The Quincy Ju- nior High School eighth grade girls basketball team don their new uni- forms.
