A circle of support at CBRD "Pink Out."

A circle of support at CBRD "Pink Out."

The purple, gold, and white fall baseball and softball uniforms worn by players at the Cochran-Bleckley Rec. Department had a new color added Thursday, pink.  That's because it was "pink out" night for brest cancer awareness.  It gave one team a chance to honor a couple of mothers who are battling the disease.

Lisa Dixon and Kim Fernandez have sons on the 13-14 boys baseball team.  Both are battling breast cancer.  But they were there to watch Parker (Dixon's son) and Jack (Fernandez's son) play.  The team wore pink shirts and signs of support were hung on the dugout.

CBRD officials hope to make next year's pink out bigger.

BCHS wins Mary Persons Bulldawg Cheer Classic.

It'd been over a month since Bleckley brought home a first place trophy from a cheerleading competition.  Partially due to injuries, the squad had struggled at times.  Saturday, BC had their best performance of the season in winning the AA division of the Bulldawg Cheer Classic hosted by Mary Persons High School.  All the stunts stuck, the only deductions coming from knees down during tumbling passes.

Bleckley will have a final tuneup before region November 1 at Union Grove High School.
