Girls Basketball Plays Pink Out Against Brunswick, Win 56 to 37
by Noah Lind
The Walkersville girls basketball team took on Brunswick last night and won 56 – 37. The players wore pink to show their support and care for victims of breast cancer. The student section also came out wearing all pink to show their support.
Junior Megan Allen said,“Our team is really excited to play for a good cause. We have some pink shirts to wear for the game and we all really like them. We play Brunswick so hopefully we will come out with a win for all the people fighting breast cancer.”
The game started off a bit shaky for Walkersville. They seemed to not be trying as hard or almost as if they were out of energy out on the court. But as the game progressed, the Lady Lions seemed to regain some of that energy and take back the game from Brunswick.
“We started off really slow and hardly had any energy, but as the game went along we started to get in a rhythm. We came out with a win and it was a great night with all the support. We gave all the breast cancer survivors and those fighting it a rose and candy to thank them for coming out to support us and for being strong,” Allen stated after the game.
“It was a tough game but we ended up pulling through and taking the win. It was really awesome that the student section was all wearing pink to support the breast cancer survivors and it really meant a lot to us to show our support for those who are currently fighting breast cancer,” stated junior Julia Wallace.
