DURHAM, N.H. – The University of New Hampshire women's volleyball team played host to another successful “Volley 4 Holly” event on Tuesday, May 11. The sixth-annual “Volley 4 Holly” tournament raised close to $1,500 for the Holly Young Fund, while a 24 teams competed including representatives from 13 varsity programs and intra-department teams participated.

The event was created to raise money for Wildcat volleyball player Holly Young, who passed away on Jan. 24, 2008 after a courageous three-year battle with Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. The funds raised at the event will go to a scholarship setup in Young's name at Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School, the Jimmy Fund and cancer research.

Teams made a minimum donation of $50, while several sponsors helped made the event even more successful.

For those who would still like to make a contribution to the tournament or the Holly Young Fund, please contact Associate Head Coach Stacy Barnett at 603-862-4664.
