Reds celebrate MND volleyball championship

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Mt. Notre Dame volleyball team celebrated their state championship Friday with a special guest.

Brandon Phillips, at request of students at the school, showed up at the school pep rally to honor the team. The girls reached out to the Reds All Star through Twitter and he confirmed he would be there.

"The girls went crazy," said Charissa Brinkman with MND Communications. "We were so honored to have him here."

As he was leaving the event, Phillips joked he would bring some of his Reds teammates back to the school to challenge the champs in a volleyball game.

The MND girls won Ohio's Division I state volleyball championship last weekend in Dayton.
