The Anderson County High School volleyball team participated in the 2013 Anderson County Relay for Life event, according to a news release. The event was held Friday at Legion Park.

It was the second annual team bonding event that the team has actively participated in to help raise funds for a cure. Together the team donated a total of $350.00 to help increase cancer awareness and to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against this disease.

“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team,” head coach Courtney DeLong said in the release. “Together our team embraced the true meaning of this event, 'HOPE.'” 

“Once people choose hope, anything is possible,” said assistant coach Steve DeLong. “This team continues to grow in great character and are willing to take on big community issues off the court. They’ve shown great improvement on the volleyball court but most importantly they’ve impressed us as good citizens.”

"It's a great feeling to watch our team rise to the Relay for Life challenge and to be so committed to making a difference in the lives of others.” said assistant coach Bob Hardin. “We are looking forward to continuing our team’s success both on the court and off the court this season.”
