The Associated Student Body will host a week-long intramural volleyball tournament starting Sept. 22 on the Palo Alto High School Quad.

The tournament is the first of its kind at Paly since 2003. Nineteen teams are set to compete, nine of which are comprised of only senior players.

During the first round, four games will take place per day at lunch: two during the first half and two during the second half. Games will play to 11 points or for 10 minutes. After five points, the teams will switch sides, according to the official guidelines.

Prize for the first place team is a $40 gift card to Chipotle, second place is a $20 gift card to Kirk’s Burgers and third place is a $10 gift card to Jamba Juice, awarded to each member of the team, according senior Sports Commissioner Livi Musil.

“A fun thing to look for is definitely the names of the teams,” Musil said. “I love them.”

Sophomore and player for the VolleyBallers Josh Code is excited to participate.

“I’m most excited to have fun with my friends and my team to take home that prize,” Code said.

The games will culminate in a staff versus winners game on Tuesday, Sept. 30, according to Musil.

A similar tournament took place in 2003 when a group of boys claimed they could beat the girl’s varsity volleyball team. The varsity girls accepted the challenge, and ASB assisted in making it a school event.

Musil hopes to bring back that same energy to this highly requested event. She says the tournament will be upbeat and energetic.

“Just come and cheer,” Musil said. “It’s gonna be crazy and competitive and a lot of fun on the Quad watching the game. And watch out for flying volleyballs.”
