Block Stars shine in beach volleyball

THE BLOCK STARS'' Jake Dusdal goes up for a spike in front of teammate Justin Petras in A Tier action of the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club's Intermediate Beach Volleyball League. The Block Stars won the championship.

 

 

 

The Block Stars beach volleyball team may want to stay away from fatty foods and roller coasters for awhile, as their hearts might not be able to take any more stress for awhile.

The team took the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club’s Intermediate A Tier championship last Wednesday, but not before living on the edge in both of their playoff games. They managed to dispatch the *A Team with a 2-1 sets victory, pulling off the 15-14 squeaker of a victory on the tie-breaking set.

Apparently not content with  just one nail-biter on the night, the team captained by Justin Petras and Megan Sidey again took it to the last point in the last game against Balls In Your Face before emerging victorious again by a 15-14 (2-1 sets) final. The A* Team rebounded to win in straight sets (2-0) over Unprotected Sets for third overall.

The Intermediate B Tier final saw the Dirty Sets, captained by Jonathan Welsh and Derek Henderson, play their way to a straight sets (2-0) win over Bangers and Smash in the final. For Real took third place with a 2-1 win over It’s Not Herpes If It’s Everywhere.

The 12-team Recreational Beach Volleyball League runs on Tuesdays and has its playoff finals all lined up. The Bumping Uglies will face Strike Farce for first overall, while Makeover Makeover has a date with That’s What She Set for third spot.

Fall sports registration is currently open for the CVSSC, with leagues in indoor volleyball, indoor soccer, dodgeball, floor hockey and ultimate Frisbee. The final deadline for most of those sports is Sept. 17, though there is a Sept. 3 deadline for ultimate Frisbee.

Teams, small groups and singles can all sign up online at www.comoxvalleysports.ca, or contact Scott for more information at 250-898-7286 and scott@comoxvalleysports.ca.
