It is with a very heavy heart that The Varsity Volleyball Team share the news of our friend, Kelly Hults Lopez, who passed away after a very tough fight with neuroendocrine cancer. Always positive, with a contagious laugh and smile for everyone, she loved her family fiercely and fought so hard to be around as long as possible for her two young girls. Please continue to keep her family, and especially her husband Hector and 4 and 2 year old daughters, Olivia and Sophia, in your thoughts and prayers.
On Thursday, September 24th the JV and Varsity girls volleyball teams will be honoring Kelly Hultz Lopez at their home game against St. John Paul 23. Please join us as we celebrate her life and raise funds for those left behind. The first game starts at 4:30pm.
“Michael Li gets his ball out of the cup as his Little Linksters playing partners look on. Michael had his hole in one on #7 at Longwood Country Club from 118 yards. Way to go, Michael” (STPGA Newsletter). Michael L, 6th grade student at The Village School, made his first hole in one on Sunday, September 13th, at a Junior Golf tournament at Longwood Country Club. This is an INCREDIBLE achievement. Golfers can go an entire lifetime and never make a hole in one. Congratulations to Michael. I’m sure that ball will go in a nice display case for you to enjoy for the rest of your life. The Village School golf team can’t wait to have this youngster on the team! Congratulations, Michael!
