Rally For Raequelle-One of New Castles’ Own


Joshua Hoerner, Senior Editor

Raequelle Young is a beloved friend and teammate on the New Castle Softball team. She is a junior at New Castle High School. Raequelle was recently diagnosed with Chordoma. Chordoma is a rare slow-growing bone cancer that was found along the base of Raequelle’s skull. She is truly the sweetest person you will ever meet. She brings a lot to the varsity softball team as the first baseman with her dedication and drives to always improve. She is also so much fun to be around and always uplifts any situation. Raequelle underwent a 10+ hour surgery to remove her tumor on January 12th. She may have to receive radiation. She will either have to be in the Midwest or in Boston to receive it. We are selling these t-shirts as a way to raise money to ease some financial stress that Raequelle and her family will face during this difficult time. Raequelle is always there for others, it is time for us to rally with her now and forever!  

The Red Zone is making shirts you can purchase to help support Raequelle and her family.  The link to buy them is:
