The defending Class AAA state champions donned pink uniforms instead of their usual blue and orange as the Columbia High girls took the floor against Stone Mountain this week in an effort to raise Breast Cancer Awareness.

The team warmed up in pink Breast Cancer Awareness t-shirts and played the game in their all pink uniforms with black numerals and black and white trim on the sides. Players even donned pink shoelaces to complete the package.

Their fans joined in the effort by wearing pink “Columbia Lady Eagles Fight Breast Cancer” t-shirts and sweatshirts. The gym was decorated with Breast Cancer Awareness banners and pink balloons

The coaches got into the act with pink shirts, ties and jackets and also honored the pink shirted girls’ step team with pink roses for their participation in the night’s festivities.

Columbia seemed to enjoy the pink uniforms, especially Victoria Gonzales who hit for a game-high 25 points and completed a double-double with 10 rebounds to lead the Lady Eagles to an 81-42 victory over Stone Mountain.

The defending Class AAA champions Lady Eagles improved to 18-5 on the season in winning their 10th consecutive game.

Not to take away from a good cause and good intentions but you would think that breast cancer is the only cancer on earth now. Pink everything at the moment is the in thing to support, how about we fight and support some other cancers now too. I apologize ahead of time for those who will disagree with me. It is still a classy move on the part of Columbia High though.

It’ll be nice one day when we see the life and health of ALL people as equally important, not just women.

I like the cause, I don’t like the pink unis. I like the way the NFL does it, by wearing their regular unis and shoes socks armbands headbands are pink. It stands out better in contrast to the regular team colors. Off color team unis are annoying.

O my gosh, seriously!!! I don’t think it would ever matter what the story is, someone will have something negative to say. Who cares who pay for the unis? No breast cancer is not the only cancer right now, but my goodness, these are HS girls and they wanted to honor a cancer that might directly affect them or a family member.

Can we please take this article for what it is, a positive light about our teens

Since when did awareness mean finding a cure??? Enough already with the pink this and pink that. They have the month of October already taken over now I have to see it year round? If all these people were raising money to fund research I would be on board. I’m not forking money over for “awareness”. I’m aware of breast cancer along with ovarian cancer (which you never hear about), etc.
