The Freeman High School volleyball team returned to the practice court Monday for the first time since the school, the community and the nation were shocked by a shooting that left one student dead and three more hospitalized last week.
The Scotties were scheduled to play at Colville Tuesday night, but coach Eva Windlin-Jansen said that game has been postponed. Freeman and Newport have agreed to swap home dates for Thursday’s scheduled Northeast A League match, so Freeman’s first outing since the shooting will be on its home court.
The volleyball program was hit especially hard by Wednesday’s events. Two of the injured students, Jordyn Goldsmith and Gracie Jensen are part of the program. The third, Emma Nees, is a cheerleader and, the coach said, part of the team’s extended family.
The school canceled all activities schedule for last Thursday, which included a scheduled home match against Deer Park.
