Aces for the Cure
The varsity girls tennis team has partnered with the Susan G. Komen “for the Cure” foundation in its fight against breast cancer. The girls are seeking pledges and donations for all the “aces” they serve during all tennis matches that began Tuesday (April 15) with the beginning of the region tournament and will continue as long as they continue to play this year, hopefully till the state championships on May 10. The theme is “Aces for the Cure.” They are seeking pledges for total team aces or individual aces served. The team is made up of: Laura Pattillo, Alyssa Gale, KellyAnn Gorman, Tess Gale, Cameron Greene, Elizabeth King, Alexa Svensson , Chandler DeWitt, Meghan Flinn, Lauren Creel, Katherine Deily, Shannon Murdy and Elizabeth Vermillion. If one wishes to make a pledge for aces served or make a donation, you can see one of the girls or Fr. Kissel. Checks are made payable to: Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
