The varsity volleyball team will again this year be participating in "Dig Pink" during the Little 10 Varsity Volleyball Tournament. This event is to help raise money for Breast Cancer Research. Just like last year, the team will be selling pink volleyballs for $1 during lunches on Thursday and Friday. Please help support the team and the cause by purchasing a volleyball... you can do it in honor of or in memory of someone who has been touched by this disease. All volleyballs will be displayed on the walls at Somonauk H.S. during the tournament.
