Indiana Volleyball Club Keeps Teammates Selfless Spirit Alive at AAU Girls Nationals

Indiana Volleyball Club Keeps Teammates Selfless Spirit Alive at AAU Girls Nationals

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.
