Julia Silvestri & Eva Knudsen
On Wednesday, The Volleyball team beat the Eagles of Law 3-1 in an exciting match. The first game against Law JV lost, so this game was an exciting feat for the team. The student section never fails to impress, they were clad in pink and learned all the cheers to support Foran. As shown in the picture, Kelly Hunt made a kill so they score was 18-16. She says “I love to get kills in important games, it makes me feel amazing.” Hunt also says that she’s proud of Varsity’s win, as well as JV’s.
Senior, Julia Silvestri says, “I think that even though this game is against our cross-town rival, it’s much bigger than that. It’s about all the men and women we’re raising money for. I’m proud to say that I’m a part of this team and a part of this foundation.” They have been partnering with the Side-Out Foundation since 2009 to raise money for breast cancer research. T-shirt sales and bake sales, along with the Foran socks and portable charger sales all go toward a clinical trial specifically for patients with stage 4 breast cancer, the most advanced form of the disease and the least funded area of research. The team ended up raising $896. Since 2009, they’ve raised a total of $4,734. Coach Julie Johnson and team opened up the the donation page to the public to try to reach a goal of $1,000.
