The Third Annual Power Tuff Volleyball Tournament was held Friday at the Morris Area Elementary gym.

One junior team and one senior team advanced to play in the championship match, where the seniors prevailed for the third straight year. Jim Greenwaldt's room will be home to the traveling trophy created three years ago by Nate and Justin Lund.

The Power Tuff event was first organized by former MAHS student council members Nate and Justin Lund during their senior year. Initially the tournament was in response to the girls playing powder puff football during homecoming. The guys felt that they should have an opportunity to play volleyball.

Every year the event has been used as a fundraiser for various causes. Canned goods are always collected for the local food shelf and then the proceeds are designated to fund a particular organization. This year the FFA and the Student Council are working together to start the Jerry Juergensen Memorial Scholarship Fund. Friday's Power Tuff game raised $500 through donations and proceeds received at the door.

After the title was determined the seniors took on the faculty team in an exhibition game. The faculty team was led by two new members of the staff, Becky Hayden and Caleb Greene. The faculty won the match, as well as a little respect from the seniors.
