Oklahoma Panhandle State University
Aggie Volleyball Drops "Pink Night" Match —By Laura Nelson on 11/02/2012 Goodwell, Okla.—The Oklahoma Panhandle Chapter of the Guardians of the Ribbon parked their pink fire truck outside Oscar Williams Field House Thursday evening as the women of the Oklahoma Panhandle State University volleyball team hosted a match against Dallas Baptist University and sponsored fundraising activities for their annual "Pink Night."
Following a tough road trip, the team returned to their home court after a nearly three week absence for a conference match against the Patriots. The Aggies started out strong in the first set, scoring the first four points and maintaining the lead throughout the first half. Unfortunately, once OPSU lost the lead, DBU went on to earn the 25-17 and took the next two sets 25-9 and 25-10. The loss drops the Aggies' overall season record to 4-24 and their Heartland record to 0-13 while the Patriots improved to 17-8 and 9-3.
The team plays another conference game against St. Edward's University at home on Saturday, Nov. 3 at 11:30 a.m. The team will continue their fundraising events this weekend, selling pink-iced cookies and T-shirts at their game on Saturday, and following that game, will set up at the football game. All proceeds benefit the Guardians of the Ribbon, a non-profit group that supports local families battling all types of cancer.
