Digging In

The women’s volleyball team battled an egregious foe both on and off the court this year—breast cancer. Off the court, the team raised $500 for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation by spending three hours volunteering as servers at a local Cold Stone Creamery ice cream store. It then took on the University of Dayton in a match that was billed as a “dig for the cure.” Through sponsors pledging a flat fee or a certain amount for each dig in the match, the team raised more than $6,000. The dig for a cure effort was part of a conference-wide initiative among the Atlantic 10 volleyball teams this year in which each team dedicated one match to raising funds and awareness for the Komen Foundation.
