Daniel Boone students and faculty faced off Friday night on the hardwood for the second annual Blazers BALL (Battling Against Losing Lives) to raise awareness about suicide prevention.

The basketball game ended with the students beating the faculty 48-41.

The event, which was founded by student Joey Donohue, raised $613, eclipsing last year's total of $330. The money will be donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

"It was a great event," said teacher Adam Ebling, who serves as adviser for Blazer BALL.

Several vendors were on hand to provide information about suicide-prevention resources.
