The Penn College community dressed accordingly and supported the Wildcat women’s volleyball team in its “Pink Out” match against Elmira College on Tuesday night. Held in Bardo Gym in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the match included free cotton candy and miniature glow-in-the-dark throw volleyballs – and a $100 gift-card giveaway to the “pinkest” person in attendance, as judged by fan applause. The match was sponsored by the Off-Campus Housing Organization, Healthy Wildcats and the Athletics department.
