Last Thursday, the freshmen, JV, and varsity volley ball teams played its annual Dig Pink games with the purpose of raising breast cancer awareness.

In preparation for the games, NDB students sold tie-dye shirts for $20 and decorated the Moore Pavilion, both in shades of pink and white. Fellow Tigers created posters with positive messages, such as, “We didn’t fight alone” and “Kiss away cancer.” They were hung next to pink and white balloons and papers arranged in the shape of the symbolic cancer awareness ribbons.

Students arrived at the afternoon event covered in pink bows, beaded necklaces, and cheer poms to show their united fight in beating cancer and their support for those playing in the games.

Overall, all three teams played confidently and claimed victories in their matches against Harker School.

With assistance from coach Leslie Glore, the frosh team fought hard throughout two full matches, resulting in a 2-0 win.

Led by coaches Kimmy Washington and Brooke Baldwin, the junior varsity team played two matches as well and took a 2-0 win for NDB

JV player and sophomore Brianna Nunn reflected, “From our team’s determination to the drive from our coaches to work hard together, we were able to pull out a successful victory.”

In the final game with the varsity players, NDB gave the Harker team leis during announcements before the matches.

“One of my favorite parts of the Dig Pink game is seeing the volleyball teams, staff, and crowd wear pink,” said varsity player and senior Kat Ho. She loved seeing the community come together to demonstrate their support towards beating cancer.

Coaches Jennifer Agresti, Anne Luchetti, and Kimmy Washington helped the varsity team pull another win for the Tigers after three sets against Harker.

In events such as the Dig Pink games, the strong sense of community and drive of NDB students are represented well from start to finish.
