1st Annual Matt Yelovich/Tony Samuelson Volleyball Classic

1st Annual Matt Yelovich/Tony Samuelson Volleyball Classic

 Proceeds to benefit SADD programs at St. Teresa and Mt. Zion High Schools


St. Teresa and Mt. Zion High Schools are teaming up to support the 1st Annual Matt Yelovich/Tony Samuelson Volleyball Classic, to be held Tuesday, Sept. 11th at St. Teresa High School.


The event honors Matt Yelovich, a former Mt. Zion student, and Tony Samuelson, a former St. Teresa student, who were killed by a drunken driver in 2008. Proceeds from the event will benefit SADD (Students against Destructive Decisions) programs at each school.


 “SADD recognizes the pressures on young people to drink, use drugs or engage in unhealthy behaviors. SADD aims to educate, support and empower students to make positive decisions in their lives,” said Ken Hendriksen, St. Teresa Principal and CEO. “Matt went to Mt. Zion and Tony went to St. Teresa, so it seems a fitting tribute for them.”


T-shirts are available for purchase for $15 at both high schools.  Raffle tickets will be sold at the game for $10. Several  raffle prizes, including a 50” flat-screen TV, tickets to Illini football and Illini basketball games, an  Illini golf bag, and Ray Eldridge jewelry will be given away at the game.


Game times are 5 p.m. Freshman, 6 p.m. junior varsity and 7 p.m. varsity.
