Holly Jolly Volleyball turns 30

Broadalbin-Perth Middle School’s Holly Jolly Volleyball Tournament was celebrated for the 30th time on Friday, Jan. 12. The annual event was started by Superintendent Stephen Tomlinson when he was a gym teacher at the middle school.

The event is traditionally held on the last day of school before the holiday recess in December, but it was canceled when school closed for a snow day this year. Teacher David Wiltey said even though this year’s event was the “Martin Luther King Jr. edition,” it was still a great opportunity to get all of the students, faculty and staff together to celebrate.

“This event is a reminder to our students that we are their family away from home,” Wiltey said.

Everyone still wore their team holiday outfits and rocked out to Christmas carols.
