The Marlington Lady Dukes volleyball team is gearing up for an exciting showdown this Thursday night against the Carrollton Warriors, and they are rallying the community to help them pack the gym’s approximate 900 seats in a powerful show of support for women’s sports.

In a bid to make this event a success, the Lady Dukes have called upon their fans and the community to come together for a memorable evening of athletic excellence and camaraderie.

Taking inspiration from a recent landmark event at Memorial Stadium in Nebraska, where 92,003 fans, the highest attendance for a women’s sporting event, witnessed the five-time NCAA champion Nebraska volleyball team’s triumph over Omaha, Marlington is poised to showcase its support for women in sports.

The match between the Lady Dukes and the Carrollton Warriors will unfold at Marlington High School on Thursday, September 14th. The goal? To sell out all seats in the MHS gymnasium.

But it’s not just about the game; it’s about creating an unforgettable experience for all attendees.

Marlington’s Character Counts will be on hand to offer face painting for fans, adding a splash of color and excitement to the evening.

When it comes to nourishing hungry fans, two food trucks will be parked nearby, ensuring that no one goes hungry.

Wagler Farms will provide BBQ food, while Tropical Sno will provide a sweet and cool respite from the action-packed game. And for those feeling lucky, a 50/50 draw will provide a chance to win big.

This event isn’t just about sports; it’s a celebration of unity and empowerment in women’s athletics. Families are encouraged to come out and be part of this movement for women’s sports. Enjoy a delicious dinner, support the Lady Dukes, and be part of a greater cause that aims to elevate women’s sports to new heights.

The Lady Dukes are counting on the community to join them in this exciting endeavor.

JV starts at 5 and varsity follows at 6.
