[September 28, 2010]  DECATUR -- Lincoln Christian University women's volleyball team participated in the "Dig for the Cure" tournament at Millikin University on Friday and Saturday in cooperation with the Susan G. Komen Foundation to support breast cancer awareness.

Millikin University's volleyball program hosted the Linda Slagell "Dig for the Cure" tournament. The tournament and the breast cancer awareness effort are a fitting tribute to Millikin's coach, Linda Slagell. Slagell is a breast cancer survivor and Millikin's all-time winningest volleyball coach.

Teams participating in the tournament were Aurora University, Benedictine-Springfield, Clarke College, Concordia-Wisconsin, Earlham College, Lincoln Christian University, Millikin University, Robert Morris University and Webster University.

LCU's Red Lions volleyball team improved their record to 12-3 by winning their two matches at the "Dig for the Cure" tournament.


The Red Lions posted wins over Robert Morris College and Aurora University as LCU won three of four games during the weekend tournament.

Congratulations are in order for Krystine Schnautz and Jamie McFadden, who were both named to the all-tournament team.

"Dig for the Cure" was started in 2003 by University of North Carolina-Charlotte volleyball coach Lisa Marston. Marston, whose mother was a breast cancer survivor, used her idea as a way to raise money for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation.

The Komen Foundation is a national organization that raises money for breast cancer research. "Dig for the Cure" has become a nationwide event and a way for volleyball teams to come together and join in fellowship.
