Jacob tells about his favorite class and teacher
Last night the RHHS varsity volleyball team made a trip to Archie to participate in the first ever volleyball jamboree. The three teams playing were Rich Hill, Cass Midway and Archie.
Each game consisted of only two sets, each one started with 6 points and went until 25. The first team to 25 was the winner. Unfortunately the girls did end up losing both games but not without putting up a good fight.
Overall it was not a bad way to start out the season. It really got the girls prepared for when the real games begin.
Heads up tiger football fans the game at archie has been moved forward from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. due to the heat advisory.
