Rivalries are a part of what makes high school sports so interesting. Manteo vs First Flight is one such rivalry. But in addition to being a great rivalry, the two schools came together for the Manteo/First Flight volleyball match to have a “Dig Pink” match to bring awareness to breast cancer. The two schools also recognized those who are currently battling breast cancer. FFHS & MHS Seniors honored Lisa Booth (#4 Taryn Booth’s mom) along with Taryn before the varsity match. Congratulations to both school communities for coming together for such a great cause.
The “Dig Pink” breast cancer awareness volleyball match went to five sets with Manteo taking the victory, 3-2.

Jamie Holton led the Manteo attack with 11 kills. Player of the match Bella Alexander had 12 digs and 15 assists.
