The volleyball tournament has come to an end as the men’s and Co-Rec finals were played this past week.
In the men’s volleyball tournament, Braydens Rehab Counselors and Big Johnson Alum faced off in the finals. The teams were evenly matched as Braydens Rehab Counselors had a record of 17-4, while Big Johnson Alum had a record of 16-5.
During the regular season when the two teams faced off, Braydens Rehab Counselors won the match two sets to one.
The first set of the finals was close, but Big Johnson Alum was able to beat out Braydens Rehab Counselors, 25-23. During the second set, Big Johnson Alum had an easier time and comfortably won, 25-17. In the end, Big Johnson Alum were able to come out of the finals with a two-sets-to-none victory and the title.
The team worked well together, which was a big part of their success.
“As a team we have excellent chemistry together and it helped a lot during playoffs. It felt great to win and repeat our championship from the outdoor volleyball league in the fall. It is upsetting that some of our members will not be returning due to graduation,” said Jake Lawley, captain of Big Johnson Alum.
