ALBION – Members of the Albion varsity boys soccer team line up for the national anthem before today’s game vs. Byron-Bergen at home.

The Albion team wore pink socks today and also will for the Oct. 11 home finale vs. Medina. The team will also be selling pink ribbons and cookies on Oct. 11 with proceeds donated to the Knights-Kaderli Memorial Fund that assists cancer patients and their families in Orleans County.

Keith Akers, the team’s coach and a high school health teacher, said the Albion players  wanted to raise money and awareness about breast cancer after three Albion teachers recently fought the disease. He urged the crowd on Oct. 11 to wear pink for the Albion-Medina game.
