PULASKI -- A
good time was had by all in Mount Pulaski on Thursday night at the 2013
Volley for the Cure. Together the communities of Riverton and Mount
Pulaski raised $2,474 that was presented to Michael Stauffer's mom,
Cynthia. Local cancer survivors were also recognized in a ceremony
before the game.
Folks enjoyed a delicious
dinner served by the FCCLA, as well as the opportunity to win various
raffle prizes. The 50-50 raffle was won by Denise Farnam, who
donated the money back to the Stauffer family.
On the court, much to the delight of the Mount Pulaski fans, it was all
about the Lady Toppers. The Lady Toppers dominated Riverton in the
first match and won 25-13.
The second match saw Mount
Pulaski lead the entire time, and although Riverton charged back at
the end, the Lady Toppers held on for a 25-22 win. Cady Lowery led
the team with nine kills, and Maddy Davis followed with eight kills while
Whitney Nichols contributed seven kills and 10 digs. Maggie Olson had
another terrific night with 24 assists. Elizabeth Allen had seven digs
while Lilly Pickett chipped in with two kills and three blocks.
Pulaski travels to Glenbard this weekend for its annual tournament.
The Lady Toppers will play their last home game of the season on
Tuesday, with Senior Night.
