Belle Soccer and Volleyball had their annual Pink Out games in early October to help raise awareness and fund breast cancer research and treatment.

Soccer played its game on Oct. 1 where they won 3-0.

"It was a conference game between us and Eastern New Mexico, and we played really well," Midfielder Morgan Sibson said.

"Around halftime, we passed a bucket around to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation," Sibson said.

The volleyball team also had its own Dig Pink game on Oct. 6 against Midwestern State University and won.

The players, as well as the audience, wore pink in support of the fight against breast cancer.

"We auctioned off some stuff and sold Dig Pink shirts, balls and special edition jerseys," said center Meghan Parker.

Over $4,000 was raised at the game.

The money raised through Dig Pink went to The Side-Out Foundation’s cancer research program.
