Athletes around the nation during this month go pink — from helmets, gloves, hair-ties, socks to uniforms.
Mustang athletes got into the spirit. The Mustangs volleyball team had its Breast Cancer Awareness Month game on Friday, Oct. 18.
The Mustangs played against Modesto Junior College at home where both teams went pink.
The team wore pink shoe laces and pink shirts with the words “DIG PINK” while the coaching staff all around the gym wore or had on pink for the cause.
The team, now ranked No. 14 in state and fifth in Northern California, won the game in four sets at Marcopulos Gym.
The Mustangs now have three more home games until regionals begin. At 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 1, the Mustangs will host Cosumnes River College.
On the other side of the athletic spectrum, the Mustangs Football team are now ranked No. 19 in Northern California after the team’s first conference game on Oct 19. against American River College.
This game was the American River College Beaver’s game to go pink. The Mustangs didn’t have any pink but they were ready to take on the Beavers.
The Mustangs scored first, but the Beavers returned three touchdowns going into halftime. The Mustangs Stephan Adams had an interception and scored, taking Delta to 21 points.
The Beavers ultimately won the game 50-27.
