Dig Pink Event is a Big Success
This past Saturday, October 12th, PCA Girls Volleyball held their second annual Dig Pink volleyball tournament. The event was quite a success, raising $1,000 to donate to Side Out foundation, an organization dedicated to supporting breast cancer patients and raising awareness about breast cancer.
In tournament style, four teams composed of the Varsity Volleyball team, PCA Alumni, male students, and PCA faculty, competed against each other. In the end, the alumni team and the varsity team tied with two wins each. It was a night full of excitement and laughter, from both the fans and the teams. But the night was about so much more than that.
For Nikki Dudley, a junior and co-captain, this event hit close to home. “My great-grandmother is a survivor of breast cancer,” she shared. Abra Roberts, a PCA Alum and current freshman at Boston University, started Dig Pink at PCA last year and was pleased that it has continued and is growing. There were even more students involved this year, especially for the Boys’ team. Peter Taylor, captain of the boys, had a difficult time ensuring that everyone got some playing time. “It was great to see students, faculty and alumni come together to have some fun and to support this worthy cause,” said a parent in the stands.
The PCA Girls’ Varsity Volleyball team was delighted with the success of the event and looks forward to hosting it again next year.
