Batten Ballers Update: Week 1

The Batten Ballers are back in action this season, with teams on both the basketball and volleyball courts. 

The Ballers were offered a last-minute spot off the waitlist for basketball, and managed to make a strong showing despite on 30 minutes notice. The team had some great shots, blocks, and passes, and kept the game tied right until the end, when the Chi Alpha team scored a buzzer shot three-pointer to win the game. The team had a strong court presence, however ragtag the last-minute additions may have been (thanks to all those who happened to be in the AFC and joined our team!). 

On the volleyball court, the Ballers put up a solid fight against the Medical School team. One baller endured a hip burn from a heroic dig to receive a pass, an injury which was immediately diagnosed by the doctors in training on the other side of the net. Every team member improved by the end of the game, and we look forward to many more games with many more faces!

Our basketball team has a week off for the Superbowl, and all team members are encouraged to spend their free time bulking up by enjoying a protein-rich smoothie from the AFC. 

Hope to see many more Battenites out there next week! Volleyball games take place Tuesdays at 7:15, and basketball games resume next Sunday at 6:30.
