Girls' CYO Volleyball  Season
Begins in Pink – Emphasis on Fun and Service!

The Girls' CYO Volleyball season began with preseason tournaments in preparation for league play beginning the week of November 7.
Two tournaments were held in October – one for 7th and 8th grade teams sponsored by St. Bede CYO, Hayward, and another for 6th grede teams, sponsored by Metro League at Assumption gym, San Leandro.


In addition to exciting tournament play, the color pink was evident at both tournaments, as both featured proceeds to be donated to ending Breast Cancer.  Thanks to tournament directors, Becky Marino and Janice Pontes, and to all who participated, not only for great volleyball play but for giving back through service!


Pictured above is action from the St. Bede Tournament.  Pictured below are photos from two tournament teams.  The top photo is the St. Bede 7th grade team in special pink tie-dye uniforms for the tournament.  Below is the championship St. Leander team in their pink tournament shirts. During the tournament the team wore special uniforms honoring one of their coaches in a fight with cancer.
