On Sept. 8, Lafayette’s girls volleyball team played Eureka. This game is always greatly anticipated due to the rivalry between the Lancers and the Wildcats. However, this year’s game was even more anticipated due to the theme: All in for Ala.

Ala Blasczcyk, junior, was diagnosed with lymphoma late last year. She played varsity volleyball at Lafayette, and this year her teammates wanted to support her.

“We had a donation jar, 50/50 raffle, and the girls sold bracelets prior to the match. All of the proceeds from that, as well as the concession stand, went to Ala and her family to help with

medical bills,” Young said.

Varsity, junior varsity and freshman teams all defeated Eureka, and even better, the event raised $3,027.55
