    Raiders to host Hoops for Heroes

    When Loudoun County junior volleyball and basketball player Maggie Phillips decided to complete a service project, she wanted to do one that was personal.

    As the daughter of a Marine pilot dad, a Naval Academy graduate mom and a future Naval Academy cadet herself, Phillips came up with a plan to benefit veterans and bring the Raider community together.

    On Jan. 24, Loudoun County will host the Loudoun County High School Hoops For Heroes. The girls’ junior varsity and varsity and boys’ freshmen, junior varsity and varsity basketball teams will battle cross-town rivals Tuscarora while volunteers man the sidelines to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project, a nonprofit organization designed to honor and aid wounded veterans.

    “No matter your political views, we can all agree that as a country, we need to take care of our injured service members when they return from harms way,” Phillips said.

    Phillips, the event director, and Kat Kushner, the promotions chairman, set a fundraising goal of $10,000, which they hope to reach through individual donations, sponsorships, raffles and sales. Redskin Chris Cooley designed the T-shirts to be sold at the event, and all Raider basketball players are selling raffle tickets for a chance to win an iPad.

    Interested parties can donate either at the event or online at http// .
