The Timberland Lady Wolves volleyball team took the court on Oct. 14 to honor all of those who have been affected by breast cancer and to bring awareness to the community.
The event was the Fifth Annual “Dig Pink” Volleyball game that the Lady Wolves have sponsored.
The Lady Wolves defeated Lake City 3-0. The win puts the team in a tie for first place in the Region.
Congratulations to the Lady Wolves, and a big thank you for putting more emphasis on breast cancer awareness.

Everyone who participated enjoyed a wonderful experience.

“Since the campaign’s inception in 2006, more than nine million people have joined local Jumpstart’s Read for the Record reading celebrations,” she said. “Jumpstart has raised more than $8 million to support its year-round work in preschools in low-income neighborhoods.”
