An exciting moment in this keen game of volleyball in which
Camp 2 beat Camp 3 by 15 to 8
Richard A. Petersen

The next game was the volleyball finals which saw the spunky
SB team and the Camp 2 six tangle for the championship. Everyone
expected this to be the game of games as the two powerhouses of
volleyball clashed. Surprisingly Camp 2 piled up ten points before
5B managed. to score as the Camp 2 stalwarts played beautiful
defensive ball, spiking 5B's big gun, Howard T. Tates.
5B started clicking finally but it was too late as the camp 2
boys clamped the lead on scoring three quick goals to wind the set
up 15 to 7. The next set however saw a real battle as the 5B team
found themselves and displayed nice team work. The Camp Z sextet
kept cool, were not ruffled by the slamming and spiking of the 5B

team even though Tates managed to slip some through their tight
defense. It was touch and go all the way with the score being tied
several times. Finally with the score tied at 13 to 13, the Camp 2
team grabbed the serve away from 5B and slipped in two quick
points to snatch the set out of the grasp of 5B and take the match in
two straight sets, the final set being 15 to 13.Camp 2 went thru
the whole tournament displaying the same cool efficiency and
beautiful defense. They really played beautiful volleyball.
