Friday, March 15, 2024, Brunswick High School’s Student Council officers organized a charity volleyball game that was successful while also being competitive. 

This game was called “PowderBuff” as the underclassmen boys competed against the upperclassmen boys. Tickets were sold for $3 a piece and the money was donated to this year’s Superintendent Cup foundation, Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP). 

Sleep in Heavenly Peace is an organization that thrives off of their volunteers to help construct beds. This includes building, assembling, and delivering beds to children and families in need. 

Through the entirety of this year, Brunswick High School has continuously raised awareness and funds for SHP. Various sporting events have been “pajama out” themed where individuals were collecting donations. Donations included, but were not limited to, bed sheets, comforters, blankets, pillows, pillow cases, and cash donations. As of right now, there have been more than 100 pieces of bedding supplies that Student Council has had the opportunity to donate. Student Council president, Paige Trendell, says, “My favorite part of this effort has been seeing how all of the clubs are collaborating together for this cause.” 

The PowderBuff Volleyball game raised awareness for SHP and brought many students to the gym during connections. The game started when announcers Reese Fitch and Alexandra Swam introduced the players on both teams. After a coin toss, the underclassmen were given the first serve. Throughout the game, Luca Mosely (senior), had some powerful spikes that the underclassmen could not defend against. Though, Mark Yongbi (freshman) was able to block many of the other spikes. 

Yongbi says, “[Playing] was pretty fun, although we got destroyed by the upperclassman; I would do it again. My favorite part was spiking the ball and then looking at Luca [Mosely].” 

The game was intense as the ball went back and forth between teams over five times per point. Mark Cook (junior) also played an impressive game as the team’s setter. 

The upperclassmen team won the first set 25-20 and ended up winning the second set 13-8 as the game was cut short due to the bell.
