The champions, Team Heem

Verona High School students squared off against their teachers on the VHS volleyball court last week and, while one of the student teams won, a charity to feed the hungry was a winner too.

Seventeen teams entered the Student Council volleyball event on Wednesday, November 17, including 15 student teams and two comprised of staff, and they played a double elimination style tournament. The winning team, Team Heem, was made up of seniors Sean Buoye (president of the Student Council), Pat Donnelly, Colin Knight, Adam Mizia, Sean Mulligan, Connor Robinson, Connor Santos and Dan Vecchio.

The event raised money for Student Council activities and more than $200 was donated to Share Our Strength, whose mission is to end hunger and poverty in the U.S. and abroad. Campaigns in the U.S. include No Kid Hungry and Cooking Matters, which helps low-income families to learn to shop and cook healthier.
