HU Volleyball Match At Mac In Running For D-III Game Of Week

HU VB defense

With the right amount of voting help, Hamline's volleyball match at Macalester on Friday, October 19 may draw national attention. The Pipers-Scots matchup on the Mac campus is one of three events in the running for the NCAA Division III Game Of the Week.

Each week during the academic year and sports season, the NCAA uses Facebook polls to generate excitement for a variety of D-III institutions and sports. Fans are then encouraged to go to the NCAA D-III Facebook page and vote for the game they like the most. the one that draws the most votes gets the full treatment -- with stories, photos and videos from the event posted the following Monday. The HU-MAC event was selected because it is a "Pink Night." These nights are part of October being designated as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

To get this game selected is simple. Go to this link and search out three three games listed. Vote for the Piper-Scots matchup. That's it. (The other two matchups are eastern schools.) 

It's a great opportunity to show your support for the HU volleyball team, D-III sports in general and Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
