Hot off its second straight state championship win, the EGHS Unified Volleyball team decided it was not done with the camaraderie and competition of Unified play. What to do? Hold a Unified Volleyball reunion game, with alumni players and partners versus the 2022-23 team the Friday after Thanksgiving, Nov. 25. It turned out the alumni still have game, vanquishing the current team 2-1. The games were close, the mood joyous, with alumni members thrilled to be back on the court.

“It felt great to play again. I wish we could do it more often. It would be nice to do it every year,” said Chase Manning, who graduated in 2020.

I wish more of my team came but I just love being back in the environment,” said Katie Hayes, Class of 2021. “I hope it’s an every year kind of thing.”

“It was a lot of fun. I liked it. I had fun with my teammates playing and my brother, Colby,” said Mike Grant, who with his brother graduated in 2010.
