FORT HALL — Sho-Ban senior student Sydney Benavidez hosted a volleyball tournament Saturday, March 18, at Shoshone-Bannock Jr./Sr. High school to help fundraise for the senior class of 2023 trip to Lincoln City, Oregon.
A total of 11 teams signed up for the tournament with six women’s teams and five coed teams. Benavidez says she raised $1,500 and over all “I thought it was a really good turnout and I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did.”

She wanted to thank everyone who came out and participated and she could not have done it without the help from her family and Alberta Yazzie-Ramos along with Mia Haskett. Tobacco Control Commission also donated prizes.
