The #Irish played host to the first game of the District Tournament on Monday night, taking on the Presidents of Marion-Harding High School. With high hopes for this tournament run, the team didn't disappoint. They swept the Presidents in three games, winning 25-12, 25-21 and 25-12.
The #Irish will be back in action on Wednesday at home, taking on the Wolves of Worthington Kilbourne at Scioto High School at 6pm. Come out to support the team!
like to THANK YOU for all of your help with this year’s Volley for the
Cure. We got a little bit of a late start this year organizing the night,
but with everyone’s help I think the night was a great
success! There are so many people to thank but I especially
would like to recognize Michele Compton for all of her work on the posters and
signs in the gym. I know Michele spent countless hours getting these
ready and her posters were beautiful! I also want to thank Erin Wilcox
for helping co-chair this event. Her experience and suggestions made the
night go much easier!
In terms of
the money raised, here are the gross numbers:
and rally towels $1,896.50
paying for the t-shirts (the costs for the players and those sold to
parents/fans), the 50/50 raffle (Erin Wilcox who is donating the money back to
the Boosters) and other miscellaneous expenses, we will have about $1,200 +/-
to contribute to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. This is very comparable
to our contribution in 2013 of $1,351. And, we did not have Canes this
again for all of your contributions to the evening and, more importantly, to
breast cancer research.
If you have
any suggestions or ideas to make this evening better next year, we want to hear
from you. We will also be looking for someone to help co-chair the event
so that they can then lead it next year.
There is so much to update, but first let me say a big thank you
to everyone who helped make volley for the cure such a success. It was
definitely a fun night and I'm thrilled that we will be able to donate over
$1200 to such a worthy cause.
We have a lot going on in the coming weeks, so let me try to give
you the run down. The varsity tournament draw was this afternoon and we did
really well. We were seeded 11th overall, out of 46 teams, and I believe we
have a real opportunity to make it out of districts and into the regional
championships. Anyways, our upcoming schedule, including tournament games, is
listed below. On a side note, we will be hosting the fist two rounds of
tournament play on 10/13 and 10/15, so we will need parent volunteers for
concessions, clock, book, libero, and announcing for both of those days.
Tues. 10/7 - @ Hilliard Bradley
Thurs 10/9 - Home vs. Canal (This is also senior night, so please
plan to stay after the varsity match for a short celebration of our 5 seniors)
Sat 10/11 - JV Tournament @ Olentangy
Mon 10/13 - Varsity Tournament Game vs.
Marion-Harding 6:00pm (HOME)
Wed 10/15 - Varsity Tournament Game vs. Kilbourne
Thurs 10/23 - Varsity Tournament Game vs. TBD @
Bloom-Carroll High School 6:00pm (District Semi-finals)
Sat 10/25 - Varsity Tournament Game vs. TBD @
Bloom-Carroll High School 8:00pm (District Finals)
Mon 10/27 - Banquet 6:00-9:00 @ Der Dutchmen

Looking forward to an outstanding final few weeks! If you have any
