The Craig Parks and Recreation Department fall semi-competitive fall volleyball season came to a close Nov. 11 at the middle school gym and Hi-Way Bar walked away with the title.

Hi-Way Bar finished the round robin tournament with a 4-1 record.

“We were shocked that we won the tournament,” said Hi-Way Bar team captain Mickie Walker. “We have been playing for the last six years and we have never won the tournament. We had a good season and we were excited that we won. In years past, we always cracked under pressure and so we were really tickled with the way things turned out.”

Walker said it wasn’t easy for her team to come out on top.

“Even if we win or lose we love recreational volleyball,” said Walker. “We played some incredible teams that have come a long ways. The team from Maybell reminds me when we were starting out. In due time everybody comes into their own.”

“The other thing that I really like about recreational volleyball is that everybody seems to show really good sportsmanship,” said Walker “I like how we shake hands after every game and that is what makes it a lot of fun. We will be back next year.”

The runner-up team was the Maybell Rock Heads, who finished the tournament with a 3-2 record.

“It was our first year that we formed a team,” said Maybell team captain Pam Taylor. “We kind of talked about it and everybody wanted to do it.”

Taylor said the Rock Heads started the tournament off on the right foot, but then struggled to earn the second place finish.

“In the tournament we started really good by winning our first two games,” said Taylor. “We were kind of excited about that. On the second day of the tournament we lost our first two games and then we ended the tournament by beating a really tough team.”

Other teams in the tournament were Guts and Home Town Homes, Baker and Associates, Craig Daily Press and Trapper Mine.

“I thought that the other teams in the tournament were all really tough,” said Taylor.

“I thought that the teams would be not as competitive as they were. After our first couple of games we started practicing a little bit and then we won some games. We then started to come together.””I thought that the teams would be not as competitive as they were. After our first couple of games we started practicing a little bit and then we won some games.
