Lemont High School’s girls’ volleyball program will host South Suburban Conference rival Oak Forest High School on Tuesday, Oct. 2. A key match for the Indians as they look for the SSC title, it also promises to be a significant evening because the school will be hosting “Volley for the Cure” to benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation.
Head coach Chris Zogata’s program will participate in a variety of activities that evening to help raise funds for the Komen for the Cure Foundation, and also raise awareness about breast cancer.
All three levels of the program -- freshman, sophomore and varsity -- will take part in the festivities by collecting pledges based on the number of kills the varsity team accumulates in its match.
Additionally, donations will be taken by team members at the door, and all funds raised that evening will benefit the Komen for the Cure Foundation.
Members of the volleyball program will decorate the gymnasium with posters, balloons and streamers, and team members will wear pink ribbons in their hair.
In the varsity match, head coach Amanda Brown’s visiting Oak Forest squad will wear pink jerseys with the libero in white, while Lemont will sport white jerseys with the libero in pink. (According to www.volleyball.org, the libero is a specialized defensive player who is required to wear a different color shirt from the other members of the team.)
Oak Forest will collect pledges in advance of the “Volley for the Cure” event, and will present the Lemont volleyball program with a check with its donations so both teams can make their contributions to the Komen for the Cure Foundation.
The freshman and sophomore level matches will be played at 5 p.m., while the varsity match is slated to start at 6 p.m.
Lemont’s volleyball squad, a perennial contender for the SSC title, is off to a 13-5 start this season, and currently is 5-1 in conference play.
