The Penn College women’s volleyball team – in coordinated headbands, hair ribbons and socks – joined fans for this week’s traditional Bardo Gym “Pink Out” for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The squad’s Wednesday match against Penn State Berks included pink popcorn, fun and games, and a $50 Sheetz gift card to the “pinkest” person in the stands. The match was sponsored by the Off-Campus Housing Organization and Wildcat Athletics.
