During the Clark Fork varsity volleyball match on Monday, Oct. 8, the Lady Mountain Cats presented Mary Jo Lommen a check. They were dressed in pink T-shirts with “We Play 4 Judi” inked on the front. The check was for Judi Haskins and her family to help with medical expenses from her recent diagnosis of breast cancer.

Lommen is Judi’s mother-in-law and expressed sincere appreciation for the support the team has given to Judi and to their bringing awareness to cancer during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. More than $750 was raised by the team through bake sales and a silent auction. The Haskins family lives in Bozeman and her niece, Taylor Haskins, plays for the Clark Fork team.

Judi was diagnosed with lobular carcinoma in July and is currently undergoing radiation treatment after having a double-mastectomy. She is married to Ryan Haskins, who graduated from Superior High School in 1994. Judi, whose maiden name is Beckendorft, graduated from Plains High School in 1991.

Judi was unable to attend the match on Monday, but expressed her gratitude and was honored that the team was supporting her and her family, which includes three girls — ages 9, 5 and 2.
