This past week at Concordia was called Pink Week, which was dedicated to supporting people with breast cancer. There were pink-themed events all throughout the week for students and staff to both have fun and raise awareness for breast cancer. The week started with pink flamingos and ended with a tough loss against the Hastings Broncos.
To start off the week was Flamingo Monday. There were many plastic flamingos hidden around campus for the students to find. Students were encouraged to find as many as they could, then submit a guess as to how many flamingos there were. Whoever guessed the right number had their name put into a bowl for a chance to win a Pink Out goodie basket.
Tuesday night was girls’ night at the bonfire. Students met at the outdoor chapel for for a cozy get together to talk about wellness and women’s health.
Concluding Pink Week was the Pink Out volleyball game against the 14th ranked Hastings Broncos. The Bulldogs had trouble the first set, only getting 13 points, only four of which were kills. The second set went much better, as Concordia had the lead multiple times, and was even was winning 24-23, before the Broncos managed to break the lead and win the set 26-24. The third set was back and forth, with Concordia taking the lead several times again. They held the lead, but not for long enough, because Hastings pulled through and won the game with a third set score of 28-26.
On Saturday Oct. 13, the Bulldogs play 8th ranked Dordt College, who are still undefeated in the GPAC.
