Volleyball tournament raises funds for outreach centers

IL-YouthLeadership1

The Indian Lake High School Youth Leadership group raised more than $820 for the Chippewa and Russells Point Outreach Centers during the annual volleyball tournament prior to Thanksgiving break.  The money raised will be used for the Outreach Center’s Christmas party and to buy gifts for the children. Twenty student teams played through the bracket for a chance to take on the ILHS staff team, “Staph Infection.” At the end of the day, students crowded into the gym to watch the prevailing team of  their peers called “Setsy and I Know I.” The students started off strong, but eventually fell in two games to the undefeated staff team.

The goal was for the student teams to build a project that transports a ping pong ball into a bucket using three of the six forms of energy. Mrs. Eley says the contraptions were required to be at least three meters long. (PHOTO SUBMITTED)
