The Walker volleyball team will host Brusly on Monday in the team’s annual fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Walker’s players will wear red jerseys with “Lockhart” on the back in honor of Walker senior Monroe Lockhart, who was diagnosed with leukemia as a sophomore two years ago. All ticket sales and concessions will be donated to St. Jude, as well as all profits from a bake sale and raffle.
This will be third year Walker volleyball has had the St. Jude fundraiser.
The junior varsity match is set for 5 p.m. with the varsity match to follow at 6.
