Although the girls volleyball team lost their match 3-1 to West York on October 3, the team was able to win big in a different way donating $1,335.30 to the Pennsylvania Wounded Warrior Project.
The team and their supporters raised the money to help our country’s wounded heroes. Senior Hayley Barto “really headed the whole thing”, according to Coach Heather Schoemaker.
Some of the methods of raising money included selling neon yellow game t-shirts, selling raffle tickets at the game and accepting straight donations for the event.
Schoemaker, who is in her second year as head coach of the program, seemed both disappointed yet ambitious. “I think, unfortunately, we were on a rut for the last three matches,” she exclaimed. “With that, they had to push themselves out of that.”
The girls have four games remaining, including senior night against the Dallastown Wildcats, and they are ready to win.
“With that, we’re more determined than ever. There’s no let up until it says 25 to nothing in our favor,” Schoemaker said.
Come out and support the team as they are still just as driven, if not more, to reach their goal of districts this year.
