A select few are willing to engage in tough labor in extreme heat for fun – volunteering their time for a good cause while their peers are relaxing in the sun and mere steps away from air conditioning. Lemont High School had a group of students who did exactly that over the summer, spending almost a week working for Habitat for Humanity in Elizabethtown, Ky.

Lemont High School to host “Volley for the Cure” event on October 2


Lemont High School’s girls’ volleyball program will host South Suburban Conference rival Oak Forest High School on Tuesday, October 2. A key match for the Indians as they look for the SSC title, it also promises to be a significant evening because the school will be hosting “Volley for the Cure” to benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation.

Head coach Chris Zogata’s program will participate in a variety of activities that evening to help raise funds for the Komen for the Cure Foundation, and also raise awareness about breast cancer.

All three levels of the program - freshman, sophomore and varsity - will take part in the festivities by collecting pledges based on the number of kills that the varsity team accumulates in its match. Additionally, donations will be taken by team members at the door; all funds raised that evening will benefit the Komen for the Cure Foundation.

The volleyball program will decorate the gymnasium with posters, balloons and streamers, and team members will wear pink ribbons in their hair.

In the varsity match, head coach Amanda Brown’s visiting Oak Forest squad will wear pink jerseys (with the libero in white), while Lemont will sport white jerseys (with the libero in pink). Oak Forest will collect pledges in advance of the “Volley for the Cure” event, and will present the Lemont volleyball program with a check with its donations so that both teams can make their contributions to the Komen for the Cure Foundation.

The freshman and sophomore level matches will be played at 5 p.m., while the varsity match is slated to start at 6 p.m.
