Meet team 'Franken-swine' - Madeline Stucky, Alexis Stucky (12 Black), and Jessica & Kelsey Crane (15 Silver). The girls participated in the 2015 Pig Wrestling County Fair Fund Raiser in Wyoming! Each team had to dress up in pig themed costumes - the girls dressed up with their hair tied straight up, white streaks on the side, and (fake) stitches all over. Teams were 'purchased' Calcutta style and the proceeds were split between buyers and the County Fair. Great work girls!
Teams will serve their 50 balls for the Serve 50 Fundraiser this week. Money raised is due to Gavin by Wednesday, December 2nd. The funds will go towards acquiring new nets and balls for the gym. Also, 15% of the proceeds will go back toward your account. This is the only fundraiser for the season that the girls will be asked to participate. Please help in making this a success!!

NORCO Volleyball is a non-profit organization that focuses on developing volleyball players into well-rounded individuals. Our focus is more than volleyball and our qualified coaches strive to teach young men and women how to be successful. Every year, we hope to instill lasting impressions on these players that they will carry with them for a lifetime. Club Volleyball is a tool that teaches young men and women how to face difficult circumstances where they are forced to be uncomfortable and pushed to balance school, life, family, and volleyball. This is a challenge for every young adult and a necessary part of preparing for the next stages in life.
