HOWARD — The East Knox Bulldogs (12-5, 6-5 MBC) started out slow, but then they turned it on and never looked back as they took down the pink-clad Danville Blue Devils in Mid-Buckeye Conference girls volleyball action on Tuesday evening, 19-25, 25-16, 25-14, 25-14.

Yes, pink — not blue. More than the score, this game was special because it helped to raise money for the fight against breast cancer.

“I’m glad we won,” said East Knox coach Brooke Doup, whose team wore special black and white uniforms with ‘Volley for the Cure’ printed on the front. “This game was great for so many reasons. It usually takes our girls one game to warm up.”

Lindsey Rager led the Bulldogs’ attack with 20 kills including the final point in the decisive fourth game.

“It takes the whole team to get the kills that I have,” said Rager. “You have to get the passing from the back line and we had (East Knox teammate) Lindsey Van Hoose, who was giving me awesome sets. That helps a lot.”
