She no longer plays with the team.

But she suited up and watched the game from the sidelines.

In a recent post on Facebook, Hill’s family said they had signed up for hospice care.

During the game Wednesday, Transylvania took donations on behalf of Hill and Torsie Haugli.

Haugli is a recent graduate of the school and is fighting large cell lymphoma.

The fundraiser netted about $1,000.
