The freshman, sophomores, juniors, seniors, and even eighth graders participated in a friendly volleyball tournament last Wednesday evening, Oct. 13, in celebration of Jersey Community High School’s (JCHS) homecoming week.
After two years worth of Covid-19 restrictions, school officials said that these homecoming events were much needed for JCHS students, who have missed out on much of the fun experiences high school has to offer.
“It’s so great to see these kids having fun together again,” JCHS Principal Cory Breden said. “They’ve dealt with so much over the past few years.”
The classes were competitive and showed their school spirit and sportsmanship throughout the tournament, cheering on their fellow classmates. Laughter and cheers filled the gym, from start to finish.
Several games were played, with winners competing against each other until there were only two teams left standing. The final game was sophomores versus juniors, with the juniors claiming the victory over the tournament.
Other events throughout the week included a parade and, of course, the dance. The bonfire and kickball tournament were supposed to occur last Thursday, but were rescheduled to this Thursday evening, Oct. 20, due to poor weather conditions.
