Local schools in Pink Festival

The Benedictine University at Springfield, Lincoln Land Community College, Robert Morris University and University of Illinois Springfield volleyball teams will all play tonight in the Pink Volleyball Festival at The Recreation and Athletic Center on the UIS campus.

The teams have sold commemorative shirts promoting breast cancer awareness with the proceeds going to the local chapter of the American Cancer Society. Fans wearing these shirts will receive free admission to both matches.

LLCC, No. 19 in the National Junior College Athletic Association Division II poll, and Robert Morris face off at 5:30 p.m. UIS and Benedictine meet in the 7 p.m. match.

The Pink Festival was featured in an October 5, 2011, article in The State Journal-Register.
