URBANDALE - The girls basketball season tipped off this week and for their home opener the Urbandale girls wanted to do something to honor the police officers who were killed 3 weeks ago.

The J-Hawks wore their BLUE road jerseys at home instead of their normal white jerseys.  The blue symbolizes support for police.

The team came up with the idea on their own and got the support from the administration and Des Moines North, their opponent on Tuesday night.

Urbandale won the game 72-10.
