Yale Athletics hosted a Women’s Basketball Coaches Association Pink Zone event all day Saturday at Payne Whitney Gymnasium to raise money for breast cancer research at the Smilow Cancer Hospital.
Elis donned hot pink garments for the festivities, which began at 10 a.m. with the “Battle of the Badges,” a bench press competition, and featured a silent auction and mobile mammography. Women’s gymnastics boasted pink hair ribbons as they competed against Bridgeport and Southern Connecticut State. Women’s basketball rocked pink sweat socks for their 70–38 victory against Penn amid a pink sea of fans, a cheering squad and a marching band. Zoe Gorman captures the scene.
