The event, which is held as a way to celebrate the DIG it! teams, players, and coaches, kicked off with a speech by special guest speaker, head volleyball coach of Maryville University, Nikki Naccarato. Following Coach Naccarato’s inpsiring speech, the DIG it! teams competed in 4 matches, received a free lunch, participated in an arts and crafts/thank you card session, and were honored at the DIG it! Awards Ceremony.

15 DIG it! players were recognized for their hard work on and off the court and Patrick Henry, who has partnered with the DIG it! Program for the last 5 years, finished the day with an undefeated record and as Tournament Champions!

This was one of the most exciting tournaments DIG it! Volleyball has hosted to date. The tournament play really showcased how much each and every one of the players had improved and it was amazing to have so many volunteers from the St. Louis volleyball community come out and support this event.
