Eagles top Mustangs

October 25, 2013

The Lone Pine Golden Eagles Volleyball beat the Vasquez Mustangs for the second time this season and did it the hard way on the road.

“We knew we would have a fight on our hands after our three-game sweep,” said coach Mel Joseph.

For the 17th year in a row, family and friends of the late Christopher John Schumacher are staging Blue Ribbon Asthma Awareness Week, Oct. 15-25, to not only honor Schumacher’s memory, but to show support “for all those who have asthma and know someone who suffers from asthma,” according to organizers.
Schumacher was 14 – just shy of his 15th birthday – when he died from a severe asthma attack on Oct. 19, 1996.
