The Concord High School volleyball tournament will take place Monday, November 7, from 3:30-6:00 p.m. in the Concord High School gymnasium.
Students and even some faculty members have created teams of six players, each with a different team name and uniform.
Fans pay nothing to watch the tournament. The cost to participate is $5 per person, or $30 per team.
All money raised will go to the junior class, advised by Rebecca Tancrede. This annual fundraiser has made a good amount of money for the junior class in previous years.
Prizes will be awarded to the winning team and to the best dressed team.
“I like to be goofy and look weird,” said senior Stephanie Oberg, who hopes her team will win best uniform honors.
Jon Weinberg, a CHS junior who dedicates his free time to class government activities, looks forward to attending the tournament and even setting it all up.
“The volleyball tournament creates a nice cohesive environment that builds a stronger community overall,” he said.
Building that stronger Concord High School community is what everyone looks forward to every year.
“I am excited to play because I would be able to play a game with my friends,” said sophomore John Ahfeld, who missed out last year because he didn’t form a team.
“Who doesn’t like to win?” said senior Aidan Connor, who says his squad is looking forward to defeating all others.
It’s not too late for students (or staff) to enter teams in the tournament.
Students can either sign up during lunches, turn forms in to Tancrede in Room W5029, or bring forms with them to the gym by 3 p.m. Monday.
