NHS girls volleyball team hosted a fundraising game against Walt Whitman High School on September 28. The game was held to raise funds and awareness to support Danielle DeSimone, a NHS alumni who is currently battling leukemia. She has volunteered her time helping out the team with open gyms, practices and tryouts since she graduated in 2016.

Before the game, the entire team wore orange t-shirts, the color for leukemia awareness, that read “Digs for Danielle.” An overwhelming amount of the Northport community attended the fundraiser, and helped raise over $8,000 for Danielle.

“Whenever any sort of adversity strikes, the entire Northport community comes out in full force,” said head volleyball coach Chris Fritch. “And because of their incredible support, we can keep rallying behind Danielle as she continues her battle.”
