Toppers Dig Pink

We're now well into October and that also means Breast Cancer Awareness Month is in full swing. The Durfee Girls' Volleyball team showed their support on Friday, October 11, as they played Bridgewater Raynham in the Luke Urban Field House while "digging pink".

 

The Toppers trailed 2-1 with two more matches to play. Although BR was bigger than the Durfee team, the girls weren't backing down easily. With the support of the Sixth Man behind their backs, the Toppers were able to make a comeback and win the following two games and defeat BR 3-2.

 

"We just kept our heads in the game and worked as a team," said senior captain Carson Moreira-Rego.

 

But the Toppers weren't just successful with their game, they were also successful in their support for breast cancer. Instead of wearing their regular white home uniforms, the girls represented their team with pink shirts that they had made. They also set up a bake sale outside of the gym, selling all sorts of treats that showed their support for breast cancer.

 

"We raised about $250.00 to donate to Charlton Memorial Hospital, so we won on both aspects that night," said Moreira-Rego.

 

It's safe to say that the Toppers dig pink both on and off the court.
