A special event

As the grandmother of three granddaughters, Cayla and Caty Hawkins and Devan Brooks, who have or are now playing volleyball for Shelby County, I can say I never enjoyed a volleyball game as much as I did on Aug. 21.

First was the great response to wearing pink shirts for the Volley for the Cure for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Even the Anderson County volleyball team had pink ribbons in their hair.

Secondly, was the beautiful voice of George Cottrell singing our National Anthem.

Then there was the support of the East and West Middle schools' volleyball teams and the fans and family members.

Last but not least was the support of the Shelby County Rockets' football team during the games and the school spirit shown at the end of the game when the football team stormed the floor to congratulate the volleyball team for winning over an undefeated team.

Although this was a special event that brought in a lot of support, these girls have a full season of games. They have several games left to play and I encourage each of you to go watch and support our Shelby County High School Lady Rockets Volleyball Team.
