Connect Sports honors 44th AAU Girls' Junior National Championships as Best Amateur Sporting Event of the Year in a ceremony today Wednesday, August 23 in New Orleans.
2017 AAU Girls' Junior National Volleyball Championships nominated for annual Sports Travel Awards
The 44th AAU Girls’ Junior National Volleyball Championships, the world's largest volleyball event, came to a close Monday.
The wooden cross on the side of the road is a daily reminder for Kelsey Niccum.
“Sometimes I just go there and cry,” Niccum said.
In October 2015, Niccum lost her 17-year-old best friend, Emilie Harnish, in a tragic two-vehicle accident at a rural intersection in Indiana not far from Niccum’s family home in Wabash County. Nearly two years since that tragic day, Niccum wears her friend’s number and initials on her knee pads as a way to keep her friend close while playing the sport they both loved. She and her teammates at Grant County Volleyball Club keep Emilie alive by sharing stories of her selflessness and genuine love for others.
Opening ceremonies, competition begins and more from Day 1.
