‘Ace’ raises $1,200 for cancer research

Granville High School’s volleyball players are still learning about each other and about their new coach.

The Horde has yet to post a victory on the court, but Saturday, the Granville players – and everyone else in the gym – were all winners.

The fourth annual “Ace For The Cure” volleyball tournament raised $1,000 for cancer research and served as a milestone for Kate Becker, who took over the program this year. Becker, assistant coach Leanne Kruger and modified coach Sharissa Dunavan worked with the players and volunteers to put together the fundraising tournament, which included volleyball and a whole lot more. There were T-shirt and food sales and activities for children

“The Granville volleyball program from grades seven to 12, and their parents, are the main reason the event was so successful,” Becker said. “I am so thankful for their support and dedication to making this tournament a success every year.”

Hadley-Luzerne won the tournament, with Waterford-Halfmoon second and Granville third.

Last Thursday, in varsity play, Stillwater pinned a 3-0 loss on the Horde, winning 25-10, 25-4, 25-8. Taylor Moore had 37 points, 20 aces and 14 assists for Stillwater.

Becca McKeighan had two digs for Granville. Taylor Casey had an ace, two kills and an assist. Emily Campbell had an assist and a dig, and Bri Ettori had one ace and one kill.

On Monday, Granville lost, 3-0, at Hadley-Luzerne. The game scores were 25-7, 25-17, 26-24. For Granville, Natalie Haines  had two kills and four digs, and Becca Manalang had three aces and a dig.
