Oldenburg, IN — The Oldenburg Academy volleyball team’s “Volley for Hope” at the Hillenbrand Family Feldhaus Thursday night vs. Milan is being called a huge success.

Haessig is a Milan High School graduate who was severely injured in a motorcycle wreck in March.

He is still in therapy and will require additional surgeries.
