Three HHS athletes who worked alongside other members of the Houston community in clean-up efforts following the May tornado in Joplin were reunited Saturday with one of the homeowners they assisted.

Desiree Linkeman, who is an assistant with the College Heights volleyball team, recognized Amber Sillyman, Sydney Cremer and Haylee Kell when she saw them at this weekend’s Branson Tournament. The girls had helped clean up debris in Lineman’s yard in one of the hardest hit areas in Joplin.

Linkeman visited with the girls, who were just as excited to see her, and posed for a photo.
