Aldie, VA (Oct. 22, 2015) – The Heritage High School Pride visited the John Champe High School Knights for a “dig pink” night of remembrance, support and volleyball, and Chas Sumser captured the atmosphere and action on Thursday, October 22, posting this photo gallery of 117 images.
On a night that began with a tribute to survivors and the courageous among us battling disease every day, the two teams were ready to play as soon as the National Anthem was sung. The Knights won the first set, but the Pride returned the favor to quickly take the second. Then it was back to Aldie and back to Leesburg as the match moved to the decisive fifth set.
The Pride took control of the tie-breaker at first, but the Knights bounced back and then hung on to take the 15th point, set and match. John Champe wins: 25-21, 16-25, 25-15, 20-25, 15-11.
