  • New Harmony volleyball competes in first tourney

    New Harmony's volleyball team played its first tourney at Harrison High recently. 
    “We ended up in last place but put up a good fight.  Some of the games were close and could have gone either way.,” said coach Emily Prewitt. “New Harmony was the smallest school that participated and I think we surprised some of the other teams."
    I have a great group of girls, but they need to realize that they deserve to win.  We need to work on playing our game from start to finish, and we may end up with a winning season just yet.”
