Ysabel's Story




We sincerely appreciate the support we received from everyone who participated (players and helpers) in the Jessica Murphy Memorial Volleyball Tournament on June 3rd. You helped us honor and remember Jessie, and for that we are indebted to you. 

We also appreciate the sportsmanship that was exhibited throughout the day...the spirit and meaning of the day were evident in all that was said and done. 

The winners of the divisions are listed below. We thank all the players (over 150!) for participating even though there were no prizes this year. As you may have heard, we had a goal to raise $2,000 so we could replenish the fund with the amount of the first scholarship, which was awarded on June 1, 2000.  See Annual Scholarships.  Due to the hard work and generous nature of those involved, we raised over $6,000!
