KHS girls’ varsity volleyball beat Rockwood Summit in the annual Pink Out game. After two sets, the score for both was 25-16.

“This is a big game for us,” Julie Goodmann, head volleyball coach, said. “[Rockwood] Summit is a great team, they just beat Webster last week and we just lost to Webster last week.  I think our girls stepped up tonight and I’m very proud of the way they played, it’s a big conference win as well.  It’s incredible that [students] come out and wear their pink and are a part of this too.”

Goodmann said the game began 10 years ago after the mother of a volleyball player was diagnosed with breast cancer and the player’s teammates came together and decided they wanted to do this.  The Pink Out game has been a tradition ever since.

“This game is obviously a very special game for us because it’s all about fighting breast cancer and raising money to help that cause,” Kara Steele, senior and volleyball captain, said. “We always try to translate that onto the court [by] just fighting as hard as we can for every point. It went our way tonight which is exciting, and it was awesome to have such a big student section and the drum line and just support from the community.”
