COLCHESTER, Vt. - The Saint Michael's College athletic department will show their support for breast cancer awareness later this month, as all six spring sport programs take part in the "Pink Zone" breast cancer initiative.

"Think Pink" contests begin on April 14 at the women's tennis home match versus American International College. The initiative continues on Saturday, April 16, as the women's and men's lacrosse teams host Adelphi University at 12 and 3 p.m., respectively, on Duffy Field at Doc Jacobs Complex, and the men's tennis team takes on Assumption College at 1 p.m. Finally, the "Think Pink" games conclude on Wednesday, April 20, as the baseball team takes on Middlebury College at 3:30 p.m., and the softball squad hosts Saint Anselm College in a 3:30 p.m. doubleheader, with both games on Doc Jacobs Field.

All fans attending the "Pink Zone" contests are encouraged to show their support for breast cancer awareness by wearing pink to the games. Each contest will also include exciting raffle prizes, raffles, and contests for fans to take part in. All proceeds from Saint Michael's "Pink Zone" games will benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure of Vermont.
