WEST DES MOINES — Valley volleyball has extra motivation to do something special this season.
The Tigers’ head coach, Jeremy Mikesell, was diagnosed with stage 4 throat cancer during the offseason. He’s unable to coach Valley while he’s undergoing treatment in Iowa City.
Tuesday, at Cancer Awareness Night, both Valley and Waukee wore pink “Tiger Tough” warmups. A GoFundMe page set up to help cover Mikesell’s medical costs has already quadrupled its donation goal.
