The WVU gymnastics team helped the WVU Cancer Institute raise breast cancer awareness as the Mountaineers closed their three-week homestand at the WVU Coliseum with a 195.4, second-place showing at the Wendy M. Roach Pink Meet Invitational on Jan. 21. George Washington scored 195.575 and finished first, while Towson placed third with a 194.4 mark. Players and fans wore their pink and the public address announcer encouraged fans to join the Cancer Institute in the fight against breast cancer. Fans made nearly $700 in donations to the Institute’s Breast Cancer Program and each received an official pink Mountaineer T-shirt in return. The shirts will also be available at two upcoming pink athletic events at the Coliseum – WVU wrestling pink match against South Dakota State at 2:00 p.m. on Feb. 11 and the WVU women’s basketball pink game against Oklahoma at 3:00 p.m. on Feb. 17.
