WHS Volleyball Team Hosts “Volley For the Cure” In Match Against Tuscarora

     The WHS girls volleyball teams hosted a “Volley For The Cure” game in honor of National Breast Awareness Month last night.

     The fans seemed to really appreciate Walkersville for supporting Breast Cancer and raising money for awareness. Junior Lauren Duffy says, “I think it’s awesome that we host a pink out game for almost every fall sport. Breast Cancer Awareness month is important to me and I am so supportive of it; it’s an awesome time to mourn the deaths caused from it but to celebrate the ones who beat breast cancer.” Junior Ben Francis has been to every single one of the games this year and is their “biggest fan.” He says, “Breast cancer is mostly in females, so I think it’s definitely important for an all girls sport to come together and support the people who are suffering with breast cancer and raise money for research.”

     The first game the Lions were not communicating well and didn’t seem pumped to play. Tuscarora being undefeated, came out strong. It was 18-4 at one point, but Lions started to make a comeback and ended the game at 25-12, Tuscarora.

     Going into the second game, Walkersville seemed to be a lot more focused and ready to play. The game was super close, and toward the end it was 24-24. As known, in volleyball you have to win by 2. Tuscarora got the win after Walkersville hit the ball into the net.

     Starting off the third game it was really close. Both teams stayed even for about 8 points, then Tuscarora had a really strong server that Lions couldn’t get a good pass off of. The game ended 25-17, Tuscarora, concluding the win for the Tuscarora Titans.

     Proceeds from the game went to the Hurwitz Breast Cancer Fund of Frederick Memorial Hospital. Volleyballs next game is Monday, October 19th against Catoctin at home.
