"We, (the coaches) are grateful to the middle school coaches and AD's for their hard work and dedication to our middle school program."
On a note, all teams wore a gold ribbon in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness. The theme expressed for the night, was Volleying and Digging for a Cure. The Lady Gators offered motivation bracelets for a donation of $1.00. We will continue Volleying for a Cure on September 14th, which will be our last home game of the season. So please come out and support this cause. All proceeds will be donated the Mattie's Mission.
