The Galena Hawks volleyball team raised just under $1,700 at its Mixed-6 Tournament fundraiser on Oct. 10-11 in the SHS gym.

The money will be used to buy knee pads, shorts, and team shirts, said coach Keilah Redman.

Seventeen teams took part in the tournament. The winning team was the residence hall team, the Staff Infection, who beat the student-led No Nameers in two sets.

“The team can now buy items that the team is interested in,” said coach Redman.

The team will travel this weekend to Monroe, and then head to Delta Junction for the Breast Cancer Awareness Tournament. “The girls will be sporting their new pink jerseys,” said coach Redman.

The volleyball players are Kameron Reitan, Romay Harris, Julia Riddle, Danyal Harvey, Amber Harvey, Rudi Joseph, Kaitlyn Moos, Carolyn Sam, Julia Grant, Amanda Kopp, Clarissa Carroll, Amy Okbaok and Tirzah Bryant.
