For the Lady Warriors’ annual Pink Out game, the JV White volleyball team fought against the Hendrickson Hawks on Friday, Sept. 29. In a constant back and forth battle between the two teams, the Warriors eventually came out on top with 2-0 scores of 25-18 and 28-26.

“I thought that we were playing really well,” Renata Salazar ‘20 said. “In my mind I was just trying to stay focused, because we kept going back and forth. I felt like when it’s back and forth it makes me more nervous so I feel like I’m gonna mess up more easily.”

Over the course of the game, both teams were only one point in the lead, or tied up. However, towards the end of both sets, the Lady Warriors pulled through, sweeping the competition.

“During warm ups, I thought that [the Hawks] weren’t good at all,” Salazar said. “But when we played them, they were better than I thought. I feel like their hits were unpredictable, that’s why they were hard.”

The Warriors have held Pink Out games similar to this before, with the intent of bringing to attention the issue of breast cancer, while also raising money for the cause.

“I think it let us have more fun knowing that we were playing for a good cause,” Emma Marsden ‘21 said. “It was something we were able to let ourselves have more fun doing, but still play serious at the same time.”

The JV White team’s next game will be on Tuesday, Oct. 3 in the Warrior gym, where they will be taking on Pflugerville High School.
