Tuesday August 12 Jill Behrman’s number 6 jersey will be retired before the start of the North vs. South varsity volleyball game.

Jill Behrman tragically disappeared while riding her bike in 2000, and was later found dead. Behrman was a South student that had moved on to attend college at Indiana University.

Behrman will be commemorated tonight before the rivalry game begins, Behrman’s jersey was too worn to be framed, but a number 6 jersey representative of the number she wore will be framed and given to her parents.

The Bloomington South coach, Eugene Kim, came upon the jersey when they were cleaning out the uniform closet, and decided it was time for the jersey to be retired.

Many fans, family and friends are expected to be in attendance tonight, the freshman game has been moved to the white gym so all the bleacher in the purple gym can be pulled out.

Behrman was a member of the 1996 sectional title Panther volleyball team. This is the last sectional title the Panthers have won.

It is expected to be a strong match tonight as the Panthers are 11-5 against the strong 12-2 Cougars. The Panthers are looking to make it a seventh straight series win against the Cougars on this memorable night.
