COMPETE WITH CLASS: SANTA FE INDIAN SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL HELPS OUT OPPOSING COACH
This past weekend the Santa Fe Indian school volleyball program was hosting a scrimmage involving several New Mexico schools. The host team took the opportunity to lend an assist to another school’s coach.
Raton High School volleyball and softball coach Tinabeth Manning Dorrance recently lost her husband Robert Dorrance to a very aggressive lung illness. On Saturday, SFIS coach Brian Gurule took the microphone and spoke about the tragic loss to the Dorrance family. Then coach Gurule and his players placed a blanket in the center of the court asking for donations in memory of Robert. Teams, players and fans from all around the state walked up and placed monetary donations of all sizes.
One local fan in attendance was moved by the experience. “I was truly humbled…but what you don’t know is how much you all blessed Coach in an incredibly difficult time,” Stevie Medina posted on Facebook. “New Mexico at it’s finest!!! If this doesn’t meet the definition of #CompeteWithClass than I don’t know what does.”
