Team Island Boys win Northern Volleyball Tournament
Thursday, July 11th, 2013
The San Pedro Volleyball team, Island Boys, have been travelling every two weeks since the month of March to compete in the Hugo Patt Northern Volleyball Tournament held at the Corozal Civic Center. The team, composed of Armando Escalon, Jian Arcurio, Guillermo Rivero, Enrique Marin, Gaby Nuñez, Gustavo Morataya, Jody Leslie, Ricky Luna, Baydr Sajia, Rogi Chi, Jason Cabral and Team Captain Josean Kay, won the championship match on Saturday, July 6th against Team San Narciso.
The championship match was a challenge for the Island Boys indeed. It was a best out of five games and Island Boys were quickly losing hope when the first two sets ended in defeat. The grueling match continues, and the Island Boys rallied, winning the final three sets of the match. It was a hard earned victory for the Island, champions of the Hugo Patt Northern Volleyball Tournament.
The Island Boys would like to thank their sponsors: Sajia’s Construction, Coral beach Hotel, Captain Shark’s, Cholo’s Golf Cart Rentals and Councilor Carlos Barrientos. The San Pedro Sun joins the community in congratulating the team on a game well played.
