            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – The Plymouth State University fall athletic teams have joined together to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month with promotional events at upcoming home games. Four Panther teams will have home games this Saturday, Oct. 18, and will have events to support the cause.

            The PSU field hockey team, which hosts Salem State University at 2:00 p.m. at Arold Field, will be supporting TEAM NANCY in recognition of the one of the Panther player’s mother, who is fighting breast cancer. The field hockey team will also be supporting the national field hockey cause, Play4ACure.

            The women’s volleyball team will be hosting “Dig Pink” on Saturday as the Panthers host Keene State College, Smith College and Mount Holyoke in the Little East Conference-New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (LEC-NEWMAC) Challenge at Foley Gymnasium. There are four consecutive matches on the day, beginning with PSU vs. Mount Holyoke at 11:00 a.m.

            Other home events include the PSU Women’s Tennis Senior Day, as the Panthers host Worcester State University at 1:00 p.m. at the Holderness School Courts; and a men’s soccer match against the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth at 4:00 p.m. at The New Hampton School.

            The PSU Women's Tennis Team and Athletic Training staff are also on board and will be supporting TEAM NANCY.

            PSU encourages all fans to wear pink to all events.  The Panther Athletics department hopes the campus and local community can help make a difference in the lives of all breast cancer patients and their families.
