Solano to donate proceeds from home games to Capoot Memorial Fund

Beginning with Tuesday night’s home game against Skyline College, the Solano women’s basketball team will donate 100 percent of funds from the gate for all home games to the Jim Capoot Memorial Fund.

Jim was the Vallejo police officer who was shot and killed in the line of duty while chasing down a bank robbery suspect in Vallejo last Thursday. Jim was a well-respected member of the basketball community and coached several of this year’s Falcons when they played on his AAU team as young girls.

“This is a tremendous loss for our community,” said Coach Matt Borchert. “Jim was a good man, a great husband and a wonderful father. It’s tragic and I am still at a loss trying to wrap my brain around what’s happened.”

Additional donations to the fund can also be made at the ticket counter and are appreciated.
