The Lady Seahawks varsity volleyball team had their minds on the fight against breast cancer, and their eyes on the ball, as they downed Class 4-A Rickards Tuesday night in three straight. The game had the team wearing pink shorts, and fans who wore pink getting in for $1, all as part of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Coach Hilary Stanton said the team played well, as they snapped a two-game losing streak. On Sept. 25, the Lady Seahawks fell to Liberty County and then on Sept. 27 lost in three straight, 19-25, 14-25 and 24-26 at home against Class 4-A Godby.

On Wednesday the team (now 8-8) was set to travel to Class 4-A Wakulla, and then to district-rival Blountstown on Thursday, Oct. 4. Franklin County is at home on Tuesday, Oct. 9 against district foe Port St. Joe, for ‘Black Out’ night, where fans wearing black get in for $1. – By David Adlerstein
