Swanton and Delta High Schools Volley for the Cure


The Swanton Lady Bulldogs and the Delta Lady Panthers teamed-up on Tuesday night to help fight breast cancer and raise awareness of a disease that will be diagnosed in over 287,000 women this year according to an estimate from the American Cancer Society.

Each team recognized and honored family members or close friends that were a cancer survivor, currently battling cancer or had lost the battle, by walking onto the court with those person or carrying a pink rose in their memory.  The event, organized by Swanton parent Nikki Walborn along with a host of volunteers, included a fund-raising raffle for items donated by local businesses and community members.

“Many people are affected by breast cancer or cancer itself and without a cure we’re losing people, unfortunately,” said Nikki.   “I know it means a lot to do this and we’re raising funds for the Susan G Komen Foundation.  It gets the girls involved and let’s them give back to the community.”

Both teams wore special game jerseys, Delta had white with pink font and Swanton had light pink with a darker pink font.  Coaches and parents wore black jerseys with pink font and even the match officials wore very pink shirts with black font.

The Lady Bulldogs won the first two games of the match.  The Lady Panthers won the third game and Swanton took game four to win the match 3-1.
