Pink Out

BY Hannah Vogt

The Fort LeBoeuf High School gym was jammed packed Thursday, October 10th 2013; the result of the second annual Pink Out game. The Fort LeBoeuf girls’ volleyball team faced their rivals, the General McLane Lancers.

“Faces will be painted and cheers will be chanted,” is the motto of the crew in charge of the Pink Out game. The Blue Crew is a group of over 150 students that cheer for all the bison sports teams. “The Blue Crew mainly focuses on supporting extracurricular activities, it’s what they deserve,” explains Math teacher and advisor of the Blue Crew, Mr. Burchanowski.

Last year, during their first Pink Out game, the Blue Crew successfully donated $252.74 to breast cancer research. The goal this year was to simply surpass that amount and donate even more. Amazingly, over $500.00 was successfully donated and the Blue Crew was astounded with their accomplishment.

“It’s a proven fact that 60% of the time we win every time if the Blue Crew is present at a game,” states Math teacher, Mr. Burchanowski. Current senior volleyball player and Blue Crew member, Alexandra Carroll explains that “when the Blue Crew is at our games it definitely amplifies the adrenaline.”

The gym was covered with pink and goofy costumes reflecting the comical side of the Blue Crew. “Personally I think every school should have a ‘Blue Crew,’” it unifies the students and helps show their true colors,” says Senior Alexandra Carroll.

With the stands full of cheering fans, the Fort LeBoeuf girl’s volleyball team pulled out the win over the General McLane Lancers. Winning all three games in a row, the Fort LeBoeuf girls’ volleyball team had little trouble taking the victory.
