Students at St. Michael the Archangel School celebrated Christmas a little early this year as more than 300 attended for the third annual Holly Volleyball tournament, which raised more than $1,500.

The event, organized by the Student Council, is held annually in December to help raise money for a charity of choice.

This year, the recipient of the funds was the Wounded Warrior Project.

The tournament featured 18 teams, and the winning team was the senior-led team “All sets are off” consisting of Alex Silva, Joel DeRobertis, Will Englade, Kyle Buvens, Whitney Hartmann, Donna Graeber, Anna German, Jamie Jewell, Connor Branch, Luke Hoover and Molly Smith.
