The Severna Park Community Center hosted the third annual Community Volleyball Challenge on Saturday when communities from the greater Severna Park area came together for a day of volleyball, competition and fun!
The tournament was held in the morning with four different teams playing: Shipley’s Choice, Whitehurst, Olde Severna Park Blue and Olde Severna Park Orange.
Pool play showed good competition between the communities. The players have definitely been working on their skills since last year!
The standings after pool play were: Olde Severna Park in first with a record of 5-1, Shipley’s in second going 4-2, Whitehurst in third at 3-3, and Olde Severna Park Blue finishing fourth at 0-6.
After pool play, the teams gathered again for the third place match and the championship match. The playoffs were very exciting. Whitehurst ended up winning the third place match by scores of 25-17 and 25-7.
Shipley’s held their throne and won the championship match 25-11 and 25-21. The teams demonstrated their great volleyball skills and why they made it to the finals. The teams served very well, had some amazing rallies and some impressive attacks.
First- and second-place teams were presented with a gift certificate to the Back Room at Woodfire in Severna Park to enjoy their victory.
