Volley for the Cure

Royals Support Breast Cancer Awareness 

By: Meghan Harrer

October is National Breast Cancer awareness month. Different sporting events hold games to raise money with donations and fun activities for fan participation. On October 3, 2013, Wynford volleyball hosted the Volley for the Cure match against the Colonel Crawford Eagles. Many activities took place in between each game between the Royals and the Eagles. There was a pink king drawing for whichever senior guy raised the most money. Alec Miller raised $37.00 that week at school and was elected king. Alec was escorted by senior volleyball player Beth Ogden while wearing a pink tank top, pink short shorts, pink camo hat and cowboy boots. Alec said, “I was very surprised that I won pink king and I was extremely embarrassed.” In total, $237.04 was raised for the event which included the pink king and raffle cans which was all
donated to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation. Other pink king nominees from the senior class were Jake Glowaski who was escorted by Brenna Quinn; Mason Davis, who was escorted by Meghan Harrer; and Brock Williamson who was escorted by Amber Gottfried. Other activities took place such as the student section went out onto the court and served balls over the net trying to hit t-shirts laying on floor for a chance to win. Jake Glowaki and Hunter Miller had a race to see who could put on spandex, knee pads and a jersey the fastest and serve three balls in and over the net. Hunter Miller came out on top and won a $10.00 gift card to Bakers Pizza. Both teams wore pink jerseys for the game. Wynford’s Varsity team wore pink tank top jerseys, neon pink shoe strings and socks. Many fans attended this game and were decked out in pink to show their awareness for breast cancer. The Royals defeated the Eagles that night in three games. See the article related to the match titled “Royals Defeat Eagles at Volley for the Cure”.
