The Bellefontaine and Indian Lake communities came together Thursday to support the fight against breast cancer, with some volleyball mixed in.

The Chiefs hosted the Lakers in a Volley For A Cure event that saw Bellefontaine record a 25-19, 25-17, 25-19 victory.

Volley For A Cure was created in 2006 as a way for Ohio’s prep volleyball teams to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. Proceeds from the matches are donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

“It means so much to us because it seems like everyone has been touched by breast cancer in one way or another,” said BHS head coach Tara Zedeker. “Those personal experiences make it something that we all can relate to. It is great to look up in the stands and see both communities come together.”
