The Bear Creek School continued its support of the Side-Out Foundation to promote breast cancer awareness and treatment on Oct. 12. Every year for the past 10 years, the Christian Faith School of Federal Way has journeyed to Redmond with its volleyball teams and a busload of Eagles fans. Together the two schools filled the Bear Creek gym with pink-clad students, parents and friends cheering for their respective teams.

In the week leading up to the game, the Lady Grizzlies volleyball team sold 310 Dig Pink T-shirts. Additionally, seventh-grade students Sophia and Sara Blattenbauer coordinated a bake sale on the day of the matches. Although admission is normally not charged at Bear Creek athletics events, since Dig Pink is a fundraiser, tickets were sold for this event. All ticket sales, concession and bake sale proceeds, and T-shirt profits were donated to Side-Out, for a grand total of $4,418.90.

This year, Bear Creek defeated Christian Faith in three closely fought sets (25-23, 25-22, 25-23).
