The girls volleyball program at South High School showed their support for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month by hosting two Dig Pink events in October. Together, the events raised more than $2,300 to help spike out breast cancer.

The Lady Rebels Varsity Volleyball Team held their Dig Pink event on Oct. 7 during a home match against Jericho, and the Junior Varsity Team’s event was on Oct. 12 versus Elmont. Athletes wore special uniforms and decorated the gymnasium in pink to raise awareness for the cause. In the lobby, students sold individually wrapped food items and collected donations for the Side-Out Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports breast cancer research.

The girls volleyball teams at South High are led by varsity coach Nicholas Sepe and junior varsity coach Alexandra Camarda.
