On Friday, Oct. 19, Coginchaug volleyball held their annual Dig Pink game. At the game, the Devils crushed Morgan within the first three sets (25-6, 25-22, 25-20). Both captains were ecstatic about the crowd turnout and are proud to have raised over $1,000.
The volleyball team enjoyed playing this game because they had an opportunity to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness, donating to Middlesex Hospital. They also enjoy playing this game because they commemorate those who have fought and survived, those who lost the battle, and those still fighting.
“I think having everyone there kind of helped with the energy and keeping our team up,” said senior and co-captain Molly Shields.
“I enjoy raising all the money for everyone and setting up for it,” said senior and co-captain Sydney Fowler. “There’s always a lot of hype and excitement around it, and then all the people that come out to support. Everyone pitches in and makes a poster; everyone brings something to decorate and bakes something to sell.”
“I like doing it because when I play, I play for my nana because she had breast cancer three times,” said Shields. “It’s nice to commemorate the people who have had cancer or passed away from cancer or survivors.”
