It’s another fine day here on the hilltop, and I hope everyone had a fantastic week. Well, the volleyball game last week turned out to be quite the game. These girls were in good spirit and weren’t letting anything get them down.
Junior varsity tried keeping the scores tight through both of their games but couldn’t quite conquer that hill. The first game was short but powerful for a win to the Highland Huskies of 25 to 18. On the second game, the girls put maximum effort in and just came up short with another win for the Huskies of 15 to 12.
Varsity was nipping at the heels of the Huskies all night. On round one, we were almost point for point for the last half, but came up short with a loss of 20 to 25. Round two, went a bit better, they called out and communicated well and worked as a team. The benefit was a score of 25 to 22 win for us!
The girls fought hard in the second half of round three and fought hard to gain it back. They sadly lost with the Huskies getting a score of 25. And the final round the girls were cooking right along and fought to the bitter end, but Highland prevailed with a final score of 26 to 24.
It turns out it was Dig for a Cure as well! Dig for a Cure is a night we honor and recognize those who have battled cancer. The proceeds from the night’s auction, dessert, shirt, and ribbon sales were donated to the Lynette Dobson Scholarship Fund. They were able to raise $1,500 this year. The gym was packed with supporters and community. It was an amazing vibe all throughout the night. I was happy to be a part of it.
Now in other activities this last week, the Head Start program benefit went very well. All items sold in the auction, the silent auction had all but 3 or 4 items not sold. They had a whopping 27 cakes donated to the cake walk, and all the cake tickets were bought and cakes sold.
They were able to raise a mind blowing $4,200 (and they weren’t even done with all the tallying yet!). The Elkhorn would like to thank everyone that came out to support the fundraiser and for all the generous donations from the community. Well done all!
