School volleyball: ND-BG holds cancer event

Notre Dame-Bishop Gibbon’s “Spike Out Cancer” event held Thursday was a big success according to girls’ volleyball coach Bob Verhayden.

He said a large crowd of family, friends, classmates and alumni turned out to see the match between the Golden Knights and Scotia-Glenville, and at the same time provide financial and spiritual support to Tracey Spencer Del Vecchio.

She is the mother of ND-BG sophomore volleyball player Sarah Del Vecchio, and has been battling the disease for two years.

Notre Dame-Bishop Gibbons won the match, 25-15, 25-11, 29-31, 25-14, behind Emily Brown’s 25 assists and a combined 21 kills from Julie Nichols, Paris Jarrell and Ariana Mattice.

The Golden Knights (8-1, 11-2) and Albany (8-1, 10-1) are tied for first place in the Big 10 standings. The Golden Knights finished second to Troy last season.
