On Sunday afternoon at Penn State’s Bryce Jordan Center, the Penn State Lady Lions took on the Northwestern Wildcats in the annual Pink Zone Game. The first-ever Pink Zone Game took place in 2007. It has grown by leaps and bounds since then.
The teams wear pink to pay tribute to honor breast cancer survivors as well as those who have lost the battle.
There was no game in 2021 due to COVID-19. Lady Lion head coach Carolyn Kieger talked about the significance of bringing back the game.
“I know it’s been hard these last two years with what’s been going on COVID-wise but it’s our mission at the Pink Zone to do as much as we can to pay it forward,” Kieger said.
