Warde, Ludlowe spikers Dig Pink Monday

When the Ludlowe Falcons and Warde Mustangs meet on the volleyball court Monday night, the match will be about much more than Fairfield bragging rights.

The crosstown rivals will play their varsity match at 7 p.m. at Ludlowe High School as part of Dig Pink, a nationwide fundraiser to promote breast cancer awareness. The day will also include a freshman match at 4 p.m., and a junior varsity match at 5:30 p.m.

The Dig Pink matches will feature baked goods, drinks, and pizza on sale outside the gymnasium, and a fund-raising raffle will be held as well. Admission is free, but donations will be accepted at the door.

The two volleyball programs, including the athletes, coaches, and parents have teamed up and 100% of the proceeds and donations from Dig Pink will be go to The Norma F. Pfriem Breast Care Center, which is in association with the Bridgeport Hospital.

The Norma F. Pfriem Breast Care Center not only provides medical aid to those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, but offers a variety of multidisciplinary services with the goal of promoting the overall health of men and women in order to have a full mental and physical recovery from breast cancer.

On the court, the volleyball match promises to be an exciting one, as both Fairfield teams are in contention for FCIAC playoff spots.

The Ludlowe Falcons are in second place in the conference standings with a record of 11-1. They own an eight-game winning streak, which includes a hard-fought 3-2 win over fourth-place Greenwich on Friday.

Warde, meanwhile, is 8-4 and tied for sixth place in the FCIAC playoff race. After opening the season with three losses in four games, the Mustangs have been on a tear, winning seven of eight to move back into the playoff picture.

The Ludlowe vs. Warde contest is also being featured on MSG Varsity on Monday night.
