Last Wednesday night the MHS Volleyball team sponsored its 3rd annual Pink Night. MHS & Skyline came together to play for cancer research. Both teams wore pink jerseys and even the officials wore pink. This year was extra special because the volleyball team recently lost one of its own to cancer, Sherie Wright. Sherie and her family were honored before the game and all proceeds of over $2900 will be donated in her name to cancer research.
Between sets pink volleyballs signed by members of both teams, cheerleaders and the drill team were auctioned, as well as a beautiful pink blanket. The “Most Outrageously Pink Parade” showcased all those participants dressed in pink. The “Most Outrageously Pink” winners were: 1st place-Laine Carter; 2nd-Abby Carter ; 3rd-Jake Miles; PeeWee-Anna LaPointe. The Pink Shop offered a wide selection of yummy pink treats and pink merchandise. Four additional blankets were raffled, one of which was donated by the Wright family.
Earlier in the season, the football team also participated in a Pink Night where they auctioned off a football helmet.
In response to the question of why the volleyball team participates in Pink Night, Coach Wiscombe said, “We do it because it helps our team be aware of cancer, the needs of others and to learn to give back.”
Those involved in Pink Night appreciate the football and volleyball teams coming together for such an important cause. We also appreciate the generosity of our community!
