Dig Pink, Senior Night for volleyball team

KINGS POINT, N.Y. -- The U.S. Merchant Marine Academy's volleyball team will close out its home schedule this week with two special matches.


The Mariners will host York College in a non-conference match, in a Dig Pink game at Liebertz Gymanisum on Wednesday at 7 p.m. before playing host to Baruch College on Senior Night in the gym at 7 p.m. on Thursday.


The Dig Pink game is not a fundraiser, but is done for the awareness of breast cancer.


The Mariners hit the road this weekend for a tri-match in Danbury, Conn. They face Western Connecticut at 5 p.m. on Friday before taking on Wesleyan at 11:30 Saturday, followed by a 2 p.m. encounter against Babson.
