Catch the Golden Eagles at Pink Out, Spike Out Polio volleyball matches

CHEYENNE, Wyoming – Thrilling afternoon matchups will be presented in concert with good causes through the next two weekends as the Laramie County Community College volleyball squad hosts the inaugural Flight for a Cure and the annual Spike Out Polio games. 

On Oct. 7, the Golden Eagles will face Casper College for the Flight for a Cure, or Pink Out, game at 2 p.m. at Storey Gym, 2810 House Ave., in Cheyenne. The team will raise money for cancer awareness through various projects with all proceeds being donated to Cheyenne Regional Cancer Center. Fans are encouraged to wear pink to help support cancer awareness. LCCC Volleyball has commemorative “Flight for a Cure” t-shirts available for $10 with all proceeds benefiting the cancer center. Anyone wearing a “Flight for a Cure” shirt to the Pink Out game get in for free. Shirts can be purchased at golccc.com/sports/wvball/Dig_Pink. 

On Oct. 14, LCCC’s Rotaract Club and the Human and Public Services Pathway are teaming up with the athletics department at 2 p.m. at Storey Gym in the Spike Out Polio match against Gillette College to raise money for the Rotary Foundation. All proceeds are being donated to support the continued fight to end polio. A winter clothing drive at the Spike Out Polio match will collect items to be donated to community members in need. 

“These are excellent opportunities for our team to bring the community out to Storey Gym for causes that can profoundly impact people’s lives,” said Coach Zach Shaver. “These athletes dedicate themselves to being well-rounded people on and off the court; this is another way everyone can see how their hard work makes a difference.” 

The Golden Eagles volleyball squad continues to fight hard through their season, remaining undefeated in conference play after a hard-fought road victory against Central Wyoming College’s Rustlers Sept. 30. Shaver said the two matches will be great chances for those who haven’t cheered the volleyball team on at home this season to make their way to Storey Gym.

Storey Gym is the Golden Eagles’ temporary home while the Blue Federal Credit Union Recreation and Athletics Complex is under construction.

Tickets for the Flight for a Cure game, Spike Out Polio match and all other LCCC Athletics events can be purchased at golccc.com or at Storey gym on game days. There is no cost for student admission to LCCC Athletics events. 

Rotaract clubs, partnering with Rotary organizations, unite individuals aged 18 and older globally to exchange ideas, cultivate leadership skills, and engage in community service, fostering a network of over 10,000 clubs in 180 countries with 200,000+ members.
