Hines Rotriga named captain of WJU’s Kickball team in weekend tournament

Updated: Thursday, April 10 2014, 12:22 PM EDT
WHEELING, W.Va., -- This weekend, more than a dozen teams will battle for the championship title in the Augusta Levy Learning Center's seventh annual kickball tournament.
Students at Wheeling Jesuit University have named Hines Rotriga, a 2-year-old Wheeling boy with cancer and brother of WJU softball player Amy Rotriga, its honorary captain.
"We thought it was the right thing to do," WJU student Patrick Maxwell said. "We want to bring awareness to the 'Hope for Hines' campaign in addition to helping our friends at the Augusta Levy Learning Center."
Maxwell said the team's name is "Viva Hines." This is the second year for Wheeling Jesuit to take part. The tournament will take place at the Dimmeydale baseball fields in Wheeling and starts at 8:30 a.m. Saturday.
The kickball tournament raises money to help children with autism. The entry fee is $300. The WJU President's Office and Brian Bonacci of Advantage Auto Sales contributed $150 each for university students to create a team.
