Every year Blue Ridge has a Pink Out basketball game to show support for breast cancer awareness. This year the game was played on January 11 against the Susquehanna Sabers.
Junior varsity basketball started at 5:30, with varsity following. The student body showed their support by dressing up in pink all day. The cheerleaders even wore pink bows and pink socks to promote the message. School spirit dominated the game, and cheerleaders even did their dance routine to get the crowd going during half time.
Junior and basketball cheerleader Liberty Graves stated, “It was an intense game and I had such a fun time cheering the boys on.”
Freshman and basketball cheerleader Rachel Upright also stated, “It was awesome doing our dance routine, cheering the boys on, and a good game even though we lost because it was for a good cause.”
Sophomore Kaden Tripp added that it was a fun game to watch with his friends and he enjoys going to the basketball games supporting the Blue Ridge Raiders.
After the game ended, players presented Mrs. Kathy Roe with some gifts.
Blue Ridge ended up losing by three points, with a final score 54-51.
The boys basketball team has many more games left this season, so come out and watch a game with some friends!
