Pink & White Game

The tenth annual Pink and White flag football Game between Assumption High School and Sacred Heart Academy will be played to a sold out crowd at Saint Xavier High School’s football stadium, 1609 Poplar Level Road, Louisville, Kentucky 40217. The event raises breast cancer awareness with proceeds going to the Norton Cancer Institute’s Breast Health Program. Since its inception in 2008, the game has raised over $200,000 for breast cancer programs.

The evening begins at 7 p.m. with a special ceremony to honor breast cancer survivors and remember loved ones who have passed away from the disease. Students from the Assumption, Sacred Heart, St. Xavier High School, and Trinity High School will escort survivors onto the field and each will present an honored survivor with a pink rose. Students memorializing a family member or friend who have passed away from breast cancer will observe a moment of silence in their honor.

Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. with halftime dance routines performed by the boys’ high schools. St. Xavier students will showcase a dance to cheer on the Assumption Rocket flag football team and Trinity students will perform to rally on the Sacred Heart players. This “role-reversal” concept was conceived to reflect a new interpretation of the famous annual football rivalry between St. X and Trinity. Tickets are not available at the event and may only be purchased at one of the four participating schools the week prior. 


It’s the largest girls sporting event each spring and it sprang from an Assumption senior dream nine years ago. The annual Pink & White Game is a flag football match between Assumption and Sacred Heart to raise money in support of the Norton Cancer Center Breast Health Program. The 2016 event raised $25,000 bringing the total amount since inception to over $195,000. With thousands of pink and white clad students in the stands, St. Xavier and Trinity students star in a halftime show performing a rehearsed dance routine on the field keeping the mood light and full of fun. The Assumption Rockets won the 2016 flag football game with a final score of 14-7. Pink & White unites four Catholic high schools for a winning cause – fighting breast cancer.
