Redmond Mustangs go ‘pink’ at swim and dive meet
Redmond High’s girls swim and dive team went “pink” for breast cancer awareness month at its Oct. 17 meet versus Eastlake High at Redmond Pool.
After the meet, the girls enjoyed pink refreshments: hot pink frosted cakes, pink wrapped candies and pink lemonade.
Many of the pink swim caps were purchased from the sportswear company Speedo, which has several types of sportswear that specifically supports breast cancer awareness. Portions of the proceeds from its sales will be donated to the cause.
Coaches, parents and spectators joined the athletes in wearing pink at the meet. The Eastlake team was particularly moved to support this cause, since one of their swim coaches is battling the disease.
The team’s graduating seniors were also highlighted at the meet.
Eastlake won, 117-66. Redmond individual winners were: Katherine Qian (50-yard freestyle, 28.47 seconds), Leanne Su (100-yard butterfly, 1:06.80) and Bethany Harper (100-yard backstroke, 1:01.26).
