Mascenic High School hosted a “Go Gold” fundraiser during the basketball tripleheader between Mascenic and Conant on Wednesday to support the family of Isaac Phillips, a 13-year-old from New Ipswich who has a rare form of childhood cancer called synovial sarcoma.

The Mascenic Athletic Booster Club has been conducting a fundraiser in the Mascenic and Jaffrey-Rindge communities since mid-December.

After the boys’ JV game, the Mascenic girls’ varsity lost 50-24, and the boys’ varsity lost 46-37. Isaac’s brother Chuck is a member of the boys’ varsity team.
