ALBION – Nick Reed kicks the ball during today’s Albion varsity boys soccer game.

The team wore pink socks in a show of support for two Albion teachers – third-grade teacher Dawn Arnold and middle school family and consumer science teacher Kim Toombs. Both were recently diagnosed with breast cancer.

Arnold’s son Drake plays for the varsity boys team. He is pictured during warm-ups.

The team takes the field with their pink socks. Dawn Arnold said the gesture was “very sweet” by her son and his teammates. “It takes a bunch of men to wear pink,” said Arnold, who was diagnosed on Sept. 11.

A fence by the soccer field included this poster for the two teachers, and many other signs for players on the boys and girls varsity and JV teams.
