Student organizes faculty-staff volleyball contest

A hardy group of Erskine faculty and staff members came out for faculty-staff volleyball Friday, April 15. “Even though it started raining, the players fought through it and continued to play,” says Erskine College senior Hannah Gibbons, who organized the event.

The staff team led by Dr. Wendi Santee won two consecutive games, Hannah reports. “They played best out of 3, first to 21 points.” Library Circulation Manager Bob Santee “really impressed the students with his willingness to dive for the ball multiple times,” she says.

Resident Director and Debate Team Coach Morgan Roberts, who lived in the state of Washington before coming to Erskine, “was very enthusiastic” about playing in the rain while Athletic Director Mark Peeler “wished it was sunny.”

Randy Moore, general manager of Aramark Higher Education Services, kept reminding everyone “that his team would win,” Hannah says.

Speaking of professors who played, “Dr. Brivio brought an umbrella to sit under when she subbed out,” Hannah notes, and “Dr. Harris practiced how to hit the volleyball for 20 minutes before the game and did well!”

Hannah, a member of the Service and Leadership Team (SALT), thanked all who came out to play and to watch. She says she hopes “we can do this again sometime with better weather.”
