Dig for Pink
The Washington University volleyball team will host “Dig for Pink” this weekend to benefit the Siteman Cancer Center on Friday Oct. 5.
“We’re trying to raise awareness and donations to go toward breast cancer research,” sophomore Lindsay Juriga said.
“We’ll be doing raffling. The joint concessions will be donated toward us. We’ll be giving away free volleyballs,” Juriga, who planned the event, said. “And so we want people to just come and support the cause wearing pink in honor of all those who survived breast cancer.”
“Dig for Pink” bracelets are also being sold from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Danforth University Center throughout the week.
The Bears continued their winning ways heading into this weekend’s slate of games with a 3-0 sweep of Webster University on Wednesday night.
Senior Drew Hargrave led the way with 21 kills on the night. Senior Marilee Fisher contributed 41 assists as well.
Wash. U. was depleted by injuries to juniors Meghan Byrne and Emily Tulloch and hope to be back to full strength by Friday.
The top-ranked Bears (17-1) take on Knox College at 5:15 p.m. and Central College at 7:30 p.m. at the Field House Friday and Monmouth College and Westminster College Saturday.
