King raises money for Oklahoma City Tornado Relief fund

BRISTOL, Tenn. – The King University men's volleyball team kicked off their season last Saturday with their annual alumni match. They used the opportunity to raise money for the Oklahoma City Tornado Relief fund, and they outdid their goal by raising $700.

Current player Nick Serowski and his family were caught in the tornado that devastated Oklahoma City and the surrounding cities. A great time was had at the match and more importantly money was raised to help the citizens of Oklahoma City. 

"It was a fun match for our team and alumni," head coach Ryan Booher said. "Most important was the fact that we raised $700 to help people in need. We were excited to see all the support and generous donations from our King volleyball community. A special thank you goes out to all our supporters."

King opens the regular season on Friday at the King University Invitational this weekend. The Tornado face Limestone College and Coker College on Friday before facing Belmont Abbey and Quincy University on Saturday.
