The Kennedy Varsity volleyball team attended the National Veteran TEE Tournament in Riverside Iowa on September 13. The team played sitting volleyball along side retired, and some disabled, veterans of all ages from various areas around the U.S.

“It was an awesome experience,” Laila Sain, jr., said. “We got to play a new type of volleyball with all types of people.”
