The Gloucester City Lady Lions hosted visiting Clearview in a battle of ladies basketball. But for those in attendance the pre-game ceremonies is what many came to witness. The Lady Lions family exhibited the true Gloucester City Spirit as they displayed a banner dedicating the 2019 - 2020 season to Frank Keith.
Frank Keith, father of Lions center Emily suddenly passed away 2 days before their season opener was a fixture seated in the Lions bleacher as dedicated supporter of GHS. Frank's daughter Emily never missed a practice or game while arrangements for her father's funeral were being finalized. But Emily's friends gathered to support their teammate at the opening game in Salem only two days before the funeral
Tonight the coach's and players showed what the true meaning of Family is. In true meaning of Gloucester Spirit these player put the Keith Family ahead of a game to honor Emily's dad, that in some way helped everyone understand there is more to life then just a GAME.
