Rivalries Bring Out the Best

Dig Pink is a fall highlight for the Cubs volleyball players and students alike. More than 700 people showed up to cheer on their respective teams. The annual match-up between Mayfield Senior School and Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy always promises thrilling competition for a great cause with proceeds donated to the Pasadena Breast Cancer Center.

Even before the big game, Mayfield students had the opportunity to purchase and tie-dye a shirt designed by Lucy Howell ‘20.  “The tie-dye will make all of the Mayfield students stand out…” said Howell who was happy that this year’s shirts were more hands-on in comparison to past Dig Pink game shirts.

The games were extremely exciting for players and spectators alike. Frosh/Soph demolished FSHA in 2 sets and Junior Varsity also beat the Tologs.  

“At first I was super nervous because I didn’t want to let down everyone who came,” said JV player Elise Sigler ‘22 “but as the game went on I got more confident and that really showed in my performance.” 

The Cubs Varsity squad put up a valiant fight, but ultimately lost in the third set to FSHA. However, with a record number of attendees decorated with face paint and pom-poms, the crowd was greatly supportive and spirited. They continually cheered for their respective teams. “My ears were ringing but I had a fun time,” recalled Ava Elizabeth Delarosa ‘22 about the fun-loving spirit that filled the event.

$3300. The amount of money raised from both FSHA and Mayfield alike for the Pasadena Cancer Center. The students and parents attending not only supported their schools, but their greater community as a whole. Although not every team won, this Dig Pink Game will forever be remembered as the one of the craziest, loudest, and most spirited in Mayfield history.
