The Matawan Regional High School student council volleyball tournament raised over $1,400 for Restore the Bayshore, a local charitable organization that supports Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
The event brought in $1,486 through admission tickets, a 50/50 raffle and Restore the Bayshore merchandise that the student council sold, according to MRHS teacher Marc Komito. The winner of the 50/50 raffle chose to donate the winnings back to the cause, he said.
The high-energy tournament was a Round Robin style competition between high school students, faculty, Aberdeen PBA Local #163 and Matawan PBA Local #179.
The teachers, with a 3-0 record, and the students, with a 2-1 record, proceeded to the final match with the teachers winning two out of the three games. The score of the final match was 28-26.
Although not the overall winners, the Matawan PBA Local #179 beat the Aberdeen PBA Local #163 during the Husky Border Battle in a tightly contested match.
