Last Thursday at St. Patrick's Gymnasium was the highly anticipated Indoor Volleyball Championships. The night was chock-full of friendly competition, strategic teamwork, and kitten whiskers...? Yes, kitten whiskers! The playful bunch on team Who Spiked Da' Punch (black) arrived with their game faces on and a surplus of positive energy that was equally matched by their court mates, team That's What She Sets (forest).
As the night progressed and each team's desire for the gold and title of "Volleyball Champions Winter 2012" intensified, so did their bumps, sets, spikes, and high-fives. Don't take my word for it, check out a few highlights from teams Bump Bros (orange), Notorious D.I.G. (red), That's What She Sets (forest) and Chug Monkeys (maroon).
While the games were incredibly entertaining and often neck and neck, there could only be one winner: Chug Monkeys (maroon)! Congratulations!
As the evening came to a close, teams The Net-Workers (light blue), BGB (royal), Sets on the Beach (kelly), and #fritatasforever (daisy) showed up to support their fellow athletes and play one final game of their own.
There are many many many different types of "Sets" in Volleyball, but for the purpose of this blog entry, we are going to be VERY general...
Please refer to http://volleyball.about.com/od/learntoplay/a/How-To_Set.htm for an easy explaination of Setting in Volleyball.
Now... Are you "all set" to play some Volleyball? These Thursday players are...!
