'Pink Out' volleyball helps cancer research

Pink hair ribbons and volleyball socks stood out at St. Joan of Arc School's girls' volleyball match in Omaha Oct. 12 as the team participated in "Pink Out" for breast cancer awareness.

St. Joan of Arc - which also encouraged coaches and fans at the game to wear pink and provided pink wristbands, temporary pink ribbon tattoos and information about breast cancer - was among several schools joining the weekend effort encouraged by the Parochial Athletic League, which includes 35 Catholic and Lutheran teams in Omaha, Plattsmouth, Fremont and Bellevue.

Officials at St. Wenceslaus School in Omaha, for example, tossed miniature pink volleyballs to fans and used a pink volleyball as the game ball, said Erin Anderson, a member of St. Wenceslaus Parish who sparked PAL's efforts, which began last year.
