Dig for the Cure Pink Volleyball Match at Wheeling Jesuit University

WHEELING, WV, Sept. 24, 2007 Wheeling Jesuit University is hosting a Dig for the Cure volleyball event on Tuesday, Oct. 2 that will support the efforts of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation.

Matches will be played at 6 p.m. as the Lady Cardinals take on West Liberty State College Lady Hilltoppers. At 8 p.m., the Lady Cards will go up against Point Park University of Pittsburgh. Both games are in the McDonough Center and are open to the public.

Fans will be asked to donate to the cause by purchasing a raffle ticket if they choose. The ticket will give donors a chance to win t-shirts, restaurant gift certificates and prizes.

Between the second and third games of the West Liberty match (6 p.m.), there will be a serving contest where crowd members can donate money for the chance to serve across the game net, hit and win prizes.

All donations will support the cause of saving lives and ending breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures. All money raised goes to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation (

A resident of Moundsville, Wheeling Jesuit head coach Christy Benner hopes that local residents, Wheeling Jesuit graduates and current students turn out for the Oct. 2 event. Benner is in her sixth season as head coach of the Wheeling Jesuit University volleyball program and guided the Cardinals to first-place finishes in the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference in each of her first four seasons at the helm. Her teams won the WVIAC conference tournament and made NCAA Division II Volleyball Tournament Regional appearances in both 2002 and 2003. Benner enters the 2007 season with a 140-60-career record as head coach at Wheeling Jesuit.

West Liberty head coach Brooke Turner is also an alumna of Wheeling Jesuit and is pleased to be a part of the pink match. The Cardinals were ranked number 2 in the pre-season West Virginia conference head coach poll and the Toppers were at the number 15 spot.
