Atlee/Hanover Girls Volleyball Rematch Tuesday

And there's more at stake than District supremacy.


Capital clash with a cause

Atlee (18-3, 9-0 Capital) will travel to Lee-Davis (12-1, 8-1) on Tuesday for a pivotal district showdown. On the line are bragging rights and district supremacy.

The Raiders won the first meeting 25-15, 25-13, 25-5 on Sept. 22, but Atlee coach Curtis Carpenter is taking nothing for granted.

"I know they will be improved and better prepared," he wrote in an email. "It is, and always has been, a big rivalry, and being on their floor I know that their fans will be loud and rockin'."

More importantly, perhaps, is the Confederates have declared Tuesday Go Pink/Dig for Pink night to raise awareness for breast cancer. Both squads will be decked out in pink, and money collected from bake sales and raffles will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

"Not only is it Dig for Pink night, which means a lot to us, but the girls know what's on the line, so they'll be fired up," Carpenter wrote.
