The Quakers will host Mid-State Conference rival Mooresville tonight in what is not only Winter Homecoming Night at Plainfield High School but also Coaches vs. Cancer Night. Head Coach Andy Weaver and his staff will be wearing suits and sneakers in an effort along with the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association and American Cancer Society to help raise money and awareness in the fight against cancer.
