Tyrone Beats Bellefonte on Pink Out Night


The Lady Eagles beat the Bellefonte Lady Raiders 3-1 on Tuesday in their annual Pink Out game for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

In the first set, the crowd got to see junior libero Kylee Nelson hit her 1000th career dig.

The Eagle Eye will run a story later this week on her accomplishment.

The Eagles wore their pink jerseys and sported pink socks to show their support. The ladies and their families made raffle baskets, had a bake sale, and accepted donations to raise money for breast cancer research.

Pink Out is extremely special to our team, seeing it first hand I know how bad breast cancer can be

— Raeleigh Oliver

The Lady Eagles raised over $1200 to help patients and their families cope and battle through this terrible disease.

The game was a huge success in spreading awareness and helping to support those in need. This game meant a lot to many of the girls who have experienced firsthand how hard breast cancer can be.

“Pink Out is extremely special to our team, seeing it first hand I know how bad breast cancer can be,” sophomore defensive specialist Raeleigh Oliver said. “Spreading awareness about this disease is a big deal in my family; after losing my gram to it and watching my mom beat it was really difficult. So this night was very special to our whole team.”

The Eagles went into this game knowing how the Raiders moved and performed from past season matches. They knew they would have to look out for the Lady Raiders’ strong blocking hands at the net.

However they also knew that their defense wasn’t strong, all the Eagles had to do was stay strong on their side-out game and stay efficient, so that is what they did.

The first set was 25-23 the Eagles had a slow start but picked it up and were able to take the set.

The second was a 25-23 loss for the Lady Eagles, the energy in this set just wasn’t there and the Eagles had trouble putting the ball on the floor.

The third was 25-18. The Eagles regained their focus during this set and stayed very disciplined on defense.

Then the fourth and final set was 25-14 giving the match win to Tyrone. The Eagles efficiently put the ball away and kept the Lady Raiders under 15 to win the match.

The Lady Eagles further improved their record to 8-4 after this memorable match.
