Woodcreek varsity volleyball played its last game of the season on October 26, ending the year on a 1-11 league record, with an overall record of 6-22. Last week, on October 17, the girls hosted an event to raise awareness for pediatric cancer patients in a game against Del Oro. Although the varsity team wasn’t able to pull of a win, losing to Del Oro with the score 0 to 3, the girls won in the hearts of parents and children who are fighting to find a cure for the destructive disease.

The event was organized by varsity volleyball player Erika Molebash in honor of Lily Chiquet and her devastating fight against leukemia, a fight which was grievously lost in May of this year. Sponsored by the Lily Chiquet Strength Foundation, which was founded by former students Michelle Kuhlke-Chiquet (and assistant coach for the varsity volleyball team) and Sean Chiquet, the game featured an auction that consisted of amazing opportunities like the chance to win a condo in Kona, Hawaii for a Thanksgiving break vacation. The auction bid and the event was a success, with the Woodcreek girls volleyball collecting $1,310 for the foundation whilst raising awareness for pediatric cancers and the devastation in can leave in its wake.
