YC Volleyball Team to "Play for the Cure"
Events to support family affected by breast cancer
The Panther Volleyball team is designating their game this Friday, October 28 as “Play for the Cure” night.
Game attendees will have the opportunity to support a York family affected by breast cancer by buying pink tee-shirts and shopping at the team’s bake sale and silent auction. Items up for bid at the silent auction will be a team-signed game ball, team-signed pink t-shirt, old team jerseys, team t-shirts, a pink Mohawk and more.
The Panthers will face off against Central Baptist at 7 p.m. in the Freeman Center. Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for students and free for kids 12 and under.
“Breast Cancer Awareness is a disease that many of our players have been affected by,” says Coach Meredith Fear. “I think most people can think of someone, a mother, grandmother, sister, friend who has battled with breast cancer. “
Play for the Cure is a personal event for fear. “My grandma is a two-time breast cancer survivor and her two sisters are also survivors,” she says.
The Panthers are having a great season so far. The team is currently 17-10, ranked third in their conference (MCAC), and 22nd in the NCCAA. “We have had an exciting season this year with six 5-game wins and only one loss at home,” says Fear.
