Recently, the High School Physical Education Department held its much-anticipated Second Annual Volleyball Tournament. Nine teams, with rosters filled by students in grades nine through twelve, participated in the fun event. 

The first tournament was held last year as part of the "Empty Bowls" Project.  After hearing positive feedback from the students about last year's competition, teachers Claire Campbell and Lanny Conner decided to organize a second tournament, this time as a stand-alone event.
"The goal was to give kids something to do on a Friday night centered around fitness and fun," stated Mrs. Campbell.   The tournament was offered free of charge and once again was well-received by the students.  According to Mrs. Campbell, "At the end of the night both Mr. Conner and I were thanked for taking the time out of our schedules to give them something fun to do. It's good to work at a small school district with great kids!" 
Pictured is the winning team from this year's tournament:  Justin Dancho, Adam Feudale, Mason Peters, Ryan Leisenring, Mitch Stanziale, Matt Jeremiah.
