The NSHS Lady Wolves volleyball team would like to invite everyone to their last home game tonight, Wednesday, October 23. This is Senior Night, and the senior teammates, Brynn Okerlund, Lainey Edwards, Devyn Sorensen, and Megan Johnson have decided to make this a ‘PINK’ game- giving light to Breast Cancer Awareness and Early Detection. Players will be wearing pink, and encourage fans to do so as well. Pink tee’s will be available for $10 with all profits being donated to Breast Cancer Awareness.
These seniors will be paying special tribute to local cancer survivors and are excited to play ball after the first ‘honorary serve’ is attacked by a special local cancer survivor—you’ll want to attend to find out who!!
The senior girls are encouraging all women to “get a mammo scheduled for our mommas’ and to call either theGunnisonValleyHospital(435-528-2125) or theSevierValleyMedicalCenter(893-0262) to schedule mammograms.
“We want everyone to keep in mind that early detection saves lives,” said Brynn Okerlund,” one of the event’s organizers.
In addition, if you mention “Mammo for Momma” when calling in October to schedule your appointment between now and the end of the year, you will receive a special gift at the time of your appointment.
Freshmen will start playing at 3:30 p.m. with JV to follow, and Varsity is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m.
“You won’t want to miss this PINK game,” said Okerlund. “Come out and support your Lady Wolves as they take on Emery!”
