LIVE VOLLEYBALL ACTION: Space Coast Daily TV and the Friday Night Locker Room present girls varsity volleyball between the Merrit Island Mustangs and Satellite Scorpions.
SATELLITE BEACH • BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA — Join Alan Zlotorzynski of Space Coast Daily and the Friday Night Locker Room for prep volleyball tonight between the Satellite Scorpions and the visiting Merritt Island Mustangs.
The Mustangs are 9-1 on the season and led by Space Coast Sports Hall of Fame and state championship winning head coach, Angie Patrick.
The Scorpions are going to test Merritt Island tonight, as they enter the contest with a mark of 6-2.
The game is special in that money is being raised to help Scorpions head football coach Ted Kimmey and his family.
Kimmey, who is in his first year as head coach at Satellite, his wife Allison, and their two children – Graham, 6 and Cambelle, 5 – evacuated for Hurricane Irma and were certain that the storm’s westward path would spare their townhouse.
Unfortunately, Irma shifted a tad to the east snd completely tore off the roof of their townhome, leaving their belongings water damaged and their house uninhabitable.
There has been a Go Fund Me page set up and you help by clicking here.
Coach Kimmey has turned around a program that hasn’t been beyond the regular season in 25 years, but more importantly has watched his team grow into mature young men as he has them heavily involved in community activities off the football field.
The team picks up trash, placed flags around Satellite Beach for the Fourth of July and helped with sandbags prior to Ima’s arrival.
Kimmey is a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point where he played football. Upon graduating, Kimmey went onto have a very distinguished career in the military before settling into coaching football.
