By: Breanna Post and Kaylyn Lewis/Co-Sports Editors

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.

Starting off the first set with a win of 25-15, the stands erupted with cheers in support. The second set was in an intense overtime with a score of 26-24. The Ladies fell short in the third set with a 25-15 loss. Making a comeback, the fourth set was won with an incredible 25-13 to end the night.

Beginning with kills, Hunter Heeman was agressive at the net and supplied 16, while Sherwood had 9, and both Cook and Breanna Post had 5. Heeman and Marshman each had 2 blocks, and the team had a total of 90 digs with libero Lydia Andusko providing 21, Marshman with 17, and Cook with 15.
