The varsity softball team competed against Sandy Creek on September 7 at home. They defeated the Patriots with a score of 4-2. The team used this game as their annual ‘Pink Out’ game, during which they support breast cancer awareness by wearing pink socks, belts and ribbons in their hair.

In addition to the support shown by the team, parents put together pink shirts to wear to the game.

Sophomore Brooke Burnett said, “It was a cool experience to be able to support breast cancer while representing our school. I definitely think it is something our team should do every year. I also think all the other sports should participate because it’s a fun way to show your support to those who have been affected by breast cancer.”

The Sept. 7 Athlete of the week, freshman Rebecca Muh, said, “On Wednesday night, not only did we beat Sandy Creek, but we also supported breast awareness and celebrated teacher appreciation night.” It was also Coach Anderson’s birthday, so the team had a lot to celebrate.

The team competed in the region tournament yesterday and finished their season third in the region, with an overall record of 11-12. They will move on to the state tournament next week.
