On Saturday, volleyballs flew all day on the sands of Riis Park as contestantís fought for the fabled winnerís sweatshirts in the Rockaway Beach Volleyball League playoffs.  The weather was brutally hot for volleyball and akin to the desert scene from "Lawrence of Arabia."  The sands were frying the bottoms of playersí feet all day.  If you thought bumping, setting and spiking was difficult enough, try doing it with your feet afire.  Somehow the level of play remained high in spite of the conditions.  Ten different division champions were crowned by dayís end and the mood was both festive and bittersweet as the 2016 season ended and the joy of another terrific year was offset by the sadness that many friends would go their separate ways over the next 10 months, not seeing each other quite as regularly anymore.  More than a few people were weepy!   Continue
