Hoops for Heart
Fairfield Middle School seventh-grader Alie Kensett battles for inside position against classmate Jimmy Kurka during the annual American Heart Association Hoops for Heart event Thursday at FMS. Kensett and Kurka were two of the 50-plus students who stayed after school to play basketball games. Middle school physical education teacher and coach Nancy Diers said the unofficial dollar amount raised by the students is near $3,000, but some money is still trickling in. When made available, final monetary results of both Hoops for Heart and Jump Rope for Heart will be published in The Ledger.
