Batten Ballers Gear Up for Beach Volleyball Playoffs

The Batten Ballers braved cold sands tonight, securing a victory over competitor “Notorious D.I.G.” The team had apparently heard about the Ballers’ dexterity and dedication, and opted to forfeit rather than lose face. The Ballers engaged in a scrimmage with another team facing a forfeit competition, and had a great time despite the weather. 


Keanen “Keen Eye” McGonigle, Graham “Cracker” Egan, Kanchana “The Foot” Sthanumurthy, and Elena “I was Just Trying to Help” Weissmann had a great showing this evening. The team learned a lot about generosity (by letting the other team score some points), commitment (by diving for hard-to-reach spikes), and public policy (by discussing outcomes matrices throughout the game). 

Keanen and Graham were an excellent duo in the spiking department, while Kanchana brought some originality to the court through her creative use of feet, knees, and wit. Elena engaged the other team in competitive yet friendly banter, sometimes distracting their captain. Graham’s digs rivaled Keanen’s blocks, and the team really came together as a single unit. 

Playoff schedules will be announced shortly. Go Batten Ballers!
