On Thursday October 17th, the Blue Ridge Lady Raiders hosted the annual pink out game to support breast cancer awareness. The stands were filled with fans, flooding the gym with arrays of pink as the volleyball team battled Dunmore. To add to the excitement, it was also senior night, recognizing Alison Marshman, Makenzie Cook, Alyssa Sherwood, and Ashley Torres.
