NHHS had their annual Pink Out game to “block out” cancer on October 15. The Shamrocks played against Fatima, presenting a sea of pink.
Players were asked what their favorite part about the Pink Out game was. Makenzie Munsinger, senior on the varsity team, said, “My favorite part was playing with my teammates.”
Emma Rohlfing, freshman, stated, “My favorite part was hammering a ball down when they over passed the ball, and when Anna Madden set me the ball how I like it, and I had one of my best hits of the whole year....”
Mikayla Maloney, a senior, isn’t a volleyball player; however, she was getting pictures of the game. She shared her game experience saying, “[My favorite part was] When Lexi Oetterer and I went to the attic to take pictures through the window during the national anthem. Then I stuck my camera out of the window, I started busting out laughing because the American Flag is right by the window and everyone was looking at me. In response, I skirted [out of] the window, and I tripped over the scale and made a big boom because of the old, rusty scale next to the window.”
Claire Meyer, senior on the varsity team, said, “the crowd was really big and awesome.”
The senior players were asked how they felt about it being their last home game at NHHS for good. Makenzie Munsinger replied, saying, “I was sad at the end of the game, realizing it was our last volleyball game together on our home floor.”
Claire Meyer stated, “it was bittersweet.”
Mikayla also added a comment, saying, “It's no joke when people say time flies. This year is going by so fast.”
In conclusion, 2018’s Pink Out game was a success.
