Bulldog teams support cancer fight with pink events

The volleyball and soccer team recently held two pink out events that are based for standing up to cancer. At the volleyball games they had more than just volleyball. This includes a bake sale, a silent auction, volleyball honor wall, serve for a cure contest, and t-shirt sales.  

The whole night was a way our program could bring awareness to those fighting cancer and those we have lost to cancer,” volleyball head coach Jill Stutler said. “I’m extremely proud of how so many people come together for a special cause.”

The night was very special to all who were there. The volleyball team has been working hard every day to get better. Currently volleyball is 5-26. The volleyball varsity roster includes Kayla Kurtz, Elizabeth Schrock, Kellee Wiggins, Emma Grossoehme, Olivia Lange, Audrey Flowers, Paige Ellis, Sydney Bergan, Amayah LaTessa and Alexia Nelson.

“I have been left speechless in both seasons how many fans, the band, and other athletic teams show up to support. It is a blessing to be apart of it all,” Stutler said.

Boys soccer is currently 6-9 and played Eudora on Oct. 4, for the pink game at BHS. Both soccer teams won with a score of 1-0. Baldwin has improved immensely since the last Eudora game and came out on top.

“This game meant a lot to me because I have known many people who have suffered from cancer, including my mother who is battling breast cancer. She has also already beat a bout with cancer a few years ago,” McCune said. “Gamewise of course we wanted to win, but it is also against Eudora, one of our top rivals.”

Team captains Blayne Chapman, Cameron Elphick and Ian Beach are especially ready to get revenge and play better as a whole for the remainder of the season. The seniors only have a few season games left and are getting ready for regionals. Varsity has won three games in a row and looking for more.

“I expect our team to play focused and with energy and hopefully play well enough to get the win,” McCune said.

The pink events are important at BHS. They support a good cause and have a good outcome. The pink events support all cancers not just breast cancer. Debbie Baldwin was a huge help to both the pink events, because she is the sponsor to SU2C.

I think it definitely impacted both fans and spectators. Louisburg fans were overwhelmed with the crowd and support and showered us with compliments. Our own students/fans got very emotional as almost everyone knows someone who is battling or lost their fight to cancer.” said Baldwin.
