RBVL Spikes a Winner in Week Four

By Joe McGivney                                                           6/23/17

 

The Rockaway Beach Volleyball League was greeted with nice but less than perfect weather on week four last Wednesday night at Riis Park.  Bumping and setting always works better when the wind stays away and all divisions took a shot from Mother Nature with the steady wind on the beach.  There were way more two balls (and one balls) than classic bump, set and spikes.  And that’s the way it goes on a breezy night.  Wednesday was the official first day of summer even though most of the league begins to think and act summery in May.  The days will now get shorter and shorter each week.  The long range forecast for 6/28 is sunny and 80°.  Will the RBVL winning weather streak live on?  We shall see.  The Sand Spikers squeezed out a win in the first game 21-19. Then Matt and newcomer Rob took over for Pico and sent the Spikers to the sand, winning the next four.  The weekly party at Pico Bar topped off the evening and was highlighted by quesadillas and taco chips galore, which were washed down with frosty summer drinks, margaritas and many ice cold beers.  If you stayed at the beach you missed a good party thrown by one of our long time sponsors.  Next week the after-party is at new sponsor Hibernian Bar in Roxbury.  Mark it down on your calendars.   continue
