There’s one day left to register for Austin Sports and Social Club’s sand volleyball league! The fun begins next week at all of our North and South locations, so if you feel like taking your indoor skills outdoors, now’s the chance!
Monday night volleyball is the perfect mix of skills and social fun, and this past Monday was no exception! Three out of the four matches of the night ended in two sets, giving players plenty of time for some free play after their matches. Once again, Trump Nation got swept under the rug in a two-set knock out by Just The Tip. 2 Bump Chumps bumped Wentwoodies on over in two sets, and Hit It and Quit It did just that to the Volley Outlaws: they hit it, and quit it!
The game of the night goes to May the Spike Be With You versus Block Party! This was the only match that went to three sets and had everybody in the gym crowding around to watch the excitement and cheer on both teams. The first set had an awesome exchange of rallies that turned into a neck and neck race with May the Spike Be With You in the lead. The only downfall for Block Party in the first set was a couple of service errors. May the Spike Be With You was able to keep the lead and finish the set 21-19. The second set was probably the longest set ever to witness, as the entire game went point for point up to 20 points. Both teams have never looked so hungry for that victory. With Block Party in possession of the volleyball, they were able to put away two more points to take us all into the third set! The third and final set started off with May the Spike Be With You taking the lead, 6-1. Once they were able to get possession back, Block Party went on their own run and was able to tie the game 6-6. After that, it was deja vu of the second set with both teams trying to pull ahead, but still ending up tied. This set went down to the final cap point with the game tied at 16-16. Now we’re in a shoot out! May The Spike Be With You served the ball to begin the final rally. There were spikes and digs exchanged, but in the end Block Party was able to lay it down and earn that match point! I’m exhausted just writing about it! What an awesome game! Congratulations, Block Party!
