The Union High School Freshmen, Junior Varsity, and Varsity Volleyball teams honored those who are currently battling breast cancer, those who have conquered the disease, and those who lost the fight with their “Pink Out” game last night against Hermann.

Prior to the Junior Varsity game, players honored Pam Nowak who is currently undergoing treatments for breast cancer.  She is the mother of player Emily Nowak, who is player #5.  Nowak was called to the court prior to the JV game and each player affectionately hugged her and gave her a pink carnation; her daughter gave her a bouquet of pink roses.

The Varsity team began their game with a moment of silence in loving memory of Senior player Jill Johnston’s aunt, who lost the fight against breast cancer.  Local businesses contributed to the game by donating various gift certificates for raffles at the game.  A booth was also set up in the lobby of the gymnasium with several breast cancer awareness items for sale.  Profits from the raffles, a 50/50 drawing, t-shirt sales, and booth sales were donated to breast cancer awareness.

Each team showed their support in a different way, dressing creatively as they attended school on Tues.

QNHN would like to applaud these students and their families for being so dedicated to such a valuable cause.
