The Vikings again participated in the annual YMCA Spaghetti Dinner on October 20.

"For the past three years, our program has volunteered for Rome's YMCA's Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser," said Berry Head Coach Cori Thiermann. "Our team helps make, serve, and deliver spaghetti dinners to the Rome community to raise money for the local YMCA chapter."

Additionally, Berry softball participated with the Challengers Sport Program for the second straight year. On Nov. 17, the team met at Miracle Field--located next to the Rome Braves Stadium--and participated in their baseball season-ending game for both the youth league and the adult league.

The Challenger Sports League is designed to help special needs children and adults have the opportunity to experience the excitement of playing sports, regardless of their disability. The program is designed for developmentally disabled persons.

"Our team enjoyed the opportunity to be a buddy, a coach, and their biggest fans!," Thiermann said.
