Volleyball Team Gives Back
All 4 DSHA volleyball teams participated in a service project for Special Olympics Wisconsin. The group hosted a volleyball tournament on Sunday, October 14 at Nicolet High School. There were 4 courts going all day (8am-6pm), with several Special Olympics teams participating. The event cannot run without people volunteering their time to ref, line judge and keep score. Our players did all of the line judging and score keeping for the tournament. They also watched and cheered on the teams if their group wasn’t working. Thanks for helping with the tournament that meant a lot to the Special Olympic athletes.
