As the Seawolves wrapped up their 3rd Annual Think Pink events last weekend playing Université Sainte- Anne Dragons in volleyball and Holland College in basketball. The Student Athletic Advisory Committee raised over $1,100 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
The money was raised through a bake sale, raffle tickets for a gift basket, and a BBQ at the Think Pink soccer games. Jill Corey, from the women’s basketball team, also donated 10-inches of her hair at half-time, at centre court.
“I was really impressed with it all and we had a lot of fun.” said Tiffany Mclong from the Women’s basketball team.
“It was awesome to see so many people come out and contribute to a good cause that affects so many people, and to watch some good games happen” said Dakota Lutes of the men’s volleyball team.
Both volleyball teams had big wins from this weekend, and the basketball teams played well despite dropping both Sunday games.
Head coach of women’s volleyball, Kevin Manuel says, “I think anytime you start four first year students and can come away with some wins like we have over the last couple of weeks, really shows the depth of our team and how far we have come since September. Mix that in with our veterans and the fact we are hosting, should provide some very exciting matches for us at championships” With 3 set sweeps both Saturday and Sunday, the men’s volleyball remains in 1st place at 7 wins and two losses, while the women’s team won 3 of 5 on Saturday
and 3 of 3 on Sunday and moves into 3rd place with a record of 7-6.
The Men’s basketball team is at 5 wins and 6 losses sitting in 4th place. The Women are in 6th place, and will look to improve their record next weekend as both teams take on Mount Saint Vincent, and Crandall this weekend.
UNBSJ will also host the Men’s and Women’s ACAA volleyball finals at the end of March, which will bring the best teams from Atlantic Canada.
