Setting Up for Summer

Jun 12, 2016 | Inside the Bubble, News

Students gathered, competed, and cheered for their fellow peers in the recent volleyball tournament that marked an exciting end to the year. Bracket spots filled up quickly and the tournament started with a bang, with 16 initial teams of two eager to advance in the tournament. Students and teachers alike came together to during lunch time to witness this unique spectacle. By the end of the first week 16 teams were narrowed to 8, and the true volleyball enthusiasts shined. As more games were played the pressure mounted, and the tournament was taken even more seriously. On Friday the final match was held — Henry and Griffin were set to take on Kian and Conrad in a series of three games. There was a larger turn out that day than any other, as students cheered on the sidelines for their competing friends. Conrad and Kian took control with a 12-4 victory in game one, but Henry

and Griffin would stick around and claim games two and three by scores of 12-2 and 12-6 respectively.

The event was a great source of entertainment to everyone, whether you were playing casually, competing to win, or cheering on the sidelines. We were grateful to have Jackie Chu and Natalie Hope as our experienced referees on the sidelines for every match to make sure sure the games were played fairly. A thanks is also in order for Nolan Matcovich and Varun Mehta who organized and coordinated the festivities. “The volleyball tournament was competitive, entertaining, people enjoyed watching it, the competition was pretty high… we had a final that was hotly contested with a deserving victor, people tuned in every week, and we pulled the whole thing off in two weeks. I would declare it a success,” said Varun after the proceedings.
