The match brought out the best in Falcon and Warrior fans as well. The gymnasium was filled with enthusiasm and cheering all decorated in pink. Students from both teams came out to support the event. The fans were sporting Volley for the Cure shirts that were sold by the volleyball teams, in addition to their bandanas, face paint and own personal flair.
Amanda Krause, a senior at Jefferson and a Falcon fan, attended the game and noticed a difference in energy. “The crowd was really into the game and supportive of the fighting Falcons,” she said.
The vibrant energy provided the teams with incentive to put up a good fight. “We had really good support from the student section, and the crowd was energetic which translated to the energy level on both sides of the court,” said Palm.
Baskets containing candy, lotions and baking supplies were assembled by the Jefferson volleyball team and their families, and were raffled off between games. A bake sale headed by some of the JAHS volleyball players and their parents added to the excitement of the event.
Falcons middle hitter, LeeAnn Farr, said, “We raised a lot of money for a good cause and had fun doing it.” The peppy environment, the inspirational cause and the competitive match all brought life and hope to a great cause.
