2017 was a great year for the co-ed Volleyball league in Wendell. Seven teams competed during the regular season and the team called Gold Diggers entered the end of the season tournament ranked #1 with a record of 9-1. Drawing a bye in round one almost proved costly as they started their first match rusty against the fourth seeded Spitfires down two games in a best of 5 match. Clawing out of the two game deficit, the Gold Diggers won the match in game 5 by a score of 15-8 to advance to the championship game against the 3 time defending champions, Passed the Age. In the championship match, the Gold Diggers won the first game in a tight battle 21-19. Then Passed the Aged fired back winning game two 21-6. The two teams split games 3 and 4 to force a deciding game 5. Jumping out to an early 6-1 lead proved to be too much for the defending champs and the new Kings of the Court were crowned winning the final game 15-9. It was a great season with a spectacular 5 game ending. With new kids on the pedestal, can you put together a team to defeat them next season......... The fee is $250 per team and registration ends March 16, 2018 Congratulations to the Gold Diggers for a great tournament! Thank you all for playing!
