Yosemite High School senior volleyball player Dainya DeBock is urging the community to come out to the league leading Badger’s (24-8, 4-0 North sequoia League) game Oct. 20 at Baker Gymnasium against rival Sierra High for two reasons.
One - She hopes for a large crowd as Sierra brings it’s 21-1 overall, and 3-1 NSL record to Yosemite with plans to defeat Yosemite, giving the Chieftains a share of the league lead.
“This is going to be a very competitive game against two real good teams, and we are hoping for a large and loud crowd to support us,” DeBock said.
Two - DeBock would like to see a huge crowd to support “Pink Out For A Cause,” raising funds for a Coarsegold teacher who is fighting cancer. The ‘pink’ night is DeBock’s and cheerleader Tapenga Holte’s Senior Project.
The fundraiser will include the sale of pink T-shirts, pink shoelaces, pink hair bows, pink bracelets, cotton candy, chicken tacos, and baked goods.
“As bad as we want to beat Sierra, we will also be playing our hearts out to raise money for the Coarsegold school teacher Tuesday night,” DeBock said. “We urge the community to come out and support their Badgers and “Pink Out For A Cause.”
The JV game between league-leader Yosemite, and Sierra begins at 5 p.m., with the varsity game at 6 p.m.
