While many high school students sit around for a week during spring break, some members of the Club Fusion volleyball team will travel to Nicaragua to play volleyball and help some communities.
"I'm so excited," Club Fusion's Adeja Lambert, a Keith Country Day student, said. "This is my first time being outside the country. I'm so excited to just work with different kids and women and restoring bathrooms in schools up there."
Hononegah senior Victoria Quintanilla echoes Lambert's sentiments.
"I'm definitely looking forward to the experience of just helping them out," Quintanilla said. "Seeing what things are like down there and just getting a chance to help out."
The chance to travel together to another country provides an opportunity to form a close bond for the team.
"It'll definitely make us come all together even more and be even more of a family," Fusion's Amber Rizzio of Harlem High School said.
Club Fusion will take a surfing lesson and go on a monkey tour in between playing volleyball and helping out school children.
"It's going to be like no other experience I've ever had," Hononegah's Katie Kniep said. "Playing with all the school children is going to be the most fun."
Club Fusion plays in a national qualifying tournament in Indianapolis this weekend before leaving for Nicaragua.
