On Thursday October 9th, the Girls Volleyball team played in the Dig Pink game against the Framingham Flyers to support breast cancer awareness and research.

The game had a solid turnout, with many members of the high school community, including faculty, students and parents, showing up to support the team. Athletic Director John Brown sported a pink shirt to show his support for the team and the cause.

The Dig Pink raffle also took place. Prizes included tickets to Celtics, Bruins, and Revolution games, as well as gift cards to local establishments such as the Linden Store, Salon One and Alta Strada. One ticket could be purchased for $1, and three tickets could be purchased for $5.

The proceeds from the event went to the Side-out foundation for breast cancer research. According to the foundation’s website, “the Side-Out Foundation (Side-Out) was established in 2004 to unite volleyball players and coaches and to have them work toward the common goal of furthering breast cancer awareness, education and patient services.”
