Herkimer Generals Volleyball “Pink the Court” for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
This past Wednesday the Herkimer Generals Volleyball team sported their specialty pink jerseys in support of breast cancer awareness month. The evening’s activities began with an introduction commemorating all of the survivors as well as honoring those who have lost their battle. The announcer also shocked the crowd with some jaw dropping statistics and urged everyone to donate towards breast cancer research to help find a cure.
The Herkimer Generals faced off against the #1 team in Region III the Raiders of Fulton Montgomery Community College. Herkimer trailed the first two games losing 25-16, and 25-13. But the Generals did not go down without a fight. Herkimer rallied together for an inspiring third game as they battled back and forth with the Raiders all the way to the final point. Unfortunately Fulton Montgomery still came away with the win 25-23 defeating the Generals 3-0 on the match.
