HOLLEY – The Holley Faculty Team competed against the Kendall Faculty Team in volleyball at the recent “Cause for the County” game at Holley Middle School/High School on March 3.

Holley won 3 games out of 4. This is the fourth time Holley has competed against Kendall in a sporting event. Ticket proceeds were divided between the Kendall Food Cupboard and Holley Loaf and Ladle. Each food cupboard netted $720. The annual game has raised over $5,000 for the local food cupboards in the last four years.

Holley faculty participants include, front row, from left: Jenn Morgan, Kellie Marciano, Janelle Baker, Renee Wolf, Kelly Frost, Kristen Pelkey, Sara Missell and Kate Connor. Back row: Sal DeLuca, Jason Cole, Jeff Shannon, Chris Grasta, Nick D’Amuro, Bill Silpoch, Jeremy DeFazio and Chad Cummings.

As part of the pre-game entertainment, brothers Ashley and Andrew Grillo wrestled against each other. This was a rematch of their 2014 half-time wrestling match during the annual faculty game, with younger brother, Andrew, a Holley physical education teacher, beating his oldest brother, Ashley, an assistant principal at Holley Elementary School, once again. Middle brother Adam Grillo served as referee of the match, while father John Grillo, Holley varsity wrestling coach, supervised.
