The volleyball team thought they were in trouble on August 24th when yet another parent meeting was held to “go over the contract.” But that was just a story they were told to mask the fact that Olympic gold medal winner and Spartan grad Hayleigh Washington wanted to come and meet our current Spartan team. The team heard advice from the Spartan grad, got autographs and pics, and even got to play a bit with the Olympic star.
