Silver Grove holds volleyball benefit for car crash victim

SILVER GROVE, KY (FOX19) -

Two Northern Kentucky girls high school volleyball teams played for a good cause Wednesday night. The game between Silver Grove and Covington Latin was played in honor of 24-year-old Dawn Mays of Southgate. Mays was killed last week when her car hit a school bus carrying the Silver Grove girls' volleyball team.

A somber moment of silence was observed before the first serve in remembrance of Mays who police say the drove left of center on Four Mile Road on August 9 and struck the bus carrying the Silver Grove team. "It was just very, very tragic. And we  didn't know what to do really," said Silver Grove senior Desiree Gossett. "We were just trying to stay together as a team and help everyone get through it."

A make-shift memorial now sits at the site just around the block from the high school. "We made a little cross and put it up there and (the family was) up there and we told them about the (benefit) game," said Silver Grove senior Jordan Rielly.

Several of Mays' family members were in attendance. "Dawn would do anything for anybody," said her mother, Teresa Mays. "You couldn't ask for a better daughter." Dawn Mays left behind dozens of friends and family members including her 3-year-old daughter, Kyra. "The whole family will be there in Kyra's life, " said Mays.

All the money taken in at the door, the concession stand and from personal donations will go directly to Dawn Mays' family.
