Braves VB wins match and gives back in Volley for the Cure!

After a week of solid fundraising and events to help raise money for Breast Cancer research and awareness, the Lady Braves took to the court for the Main Event to showcase their moves in PINK.  Playing for a HUGE contingent of Pink well wishers, the Braves faithful saw a great match between rivals Madeira Amazons and the home court Lady Braves.  It was a hard fought match, but the Lady Braves brought home the "W", winning the match 3-1. 

 

The real stars of the night were the solid fundraising efforts of both teams!  Led by student chairs Adelei Durban, Allison Kennebeck, Maryam Shaaban and Rachel Volk, the athletes worked impressively hard organizing the charity event and it was a rousing success.  All girls contributed in some way, and early proceeds demonstrate the girls netted more than 2000 dollars for the local Komen for the Cure Foundation!

The Lady Braves took to the court to let their volleyball speak for them. Bouyed by an impressive home crowd, the Lady Braves shook off an opening set loss to win the next three straight.  The Amazons were blocking in full force, but eventually the hitting attack for the Braves proved too mighty.  Led by an impressive performance from hitters Kathy Ning and Annabelle Berwanger assisted by setter Haley Henry, and flanked by the supporting hitting cast of Christina Shannon, Audrey Koster and Allison Kennebeck, the offense led the way out of the first game slump.  Madeira responded with an attack of their own in third set, but defensive stallwarts Teensy Zang and Karen Folz pulled up ball after ball and rendered the Amazon attack ineffectve.

The Lady Braves are 6-3 overalll on the season and look forward to their next match away against Deer Park Thursday September 15.  Come out to support your Braves!
