The team is raising money for the Side Out Foundation, which is funding new treatments for patients with stage 4 (metastatic) breast cancer. Stage 4 is the most advanced form of breast cancer, and there is currently no cure for it.
Coach Jordan Pickett said the team’s goal is to raise $1,000.
“I’m excited to attach our passion to a cause bigger than ourselves,” Pickett said.

The volleyball team will be using its last home game of the season Oct. 19 to promote its fundraising campaign with a “Dig Pink” Rally. Faculty and staff members who have been affected by breast cancer will be recognized at the game, which begins at 6 p.m. in the gym.
