Alumni Volleyball tournament, has a few changes this year

WAUSA—The Wausa Alumni Volleyball tournament was started in March of 1993 by Terri Suhr. She started the tournament as a fundraiser for the Wausa Summer Youth Baseball/Softball Association. Terri was a huge part of the program at that time and was looking for a fundraiser to help bring improvements to the field and the softball/baseball program. This tournament has grown over the years with the pinnacle tournament coming in 2010. This would be the last tournament that Terri was able to participate in as she lost herbattle with cancer a few short weeks after the tournament. Terri’s family and classmates came together to rally around her and all wore T-shirts in her honor. The proceeds have continued to go back to the baseball/softball program over the years.

The tournament this year is scheduled for Saturday, March 21st. Shelbey West has taken the tournament over as organizer this year and is looking at building the tournament back up to be as big as it was when Terri organized it. This year, you will see many changes to how the tournament is operated.

The first one being instead of having a team fee, there will be an individual player fee of $10. Registrations are due Sunday, March 15th so be sure to hurry and get your teams registered.

This year the baseball program will help run the tournament which means that all refs, line judges and scorekeepers will be provided, so you can sit back and enjoy the day with your classmates.

Make sure to “dress up” your team as there will be a prize for team with the best theme. We look forward to seeing what the different classes come up with to “wow” the judges!

While the baseball players will be helping with the tournament, the softball players will be working at the pancake feed at the fire hall. Come down and enjoy some yummy food and support them!

Any questions or registrations can be directed to Shelbey West at 623-680-2841 or you can email her at We look forward to seeing everyone in town that day!
