Volleyball Playoffs Winter 2004
On 29 March 2004, the Wee Beasties, my co-ed volleyball team, captured its second straight championship in the Monday Intermediate-Plus tier of the Calgary Sport & Social Club indoor volleyball league.  Playing at Crescent Heights High School and entering the playoffs as the 1st place team, we quickly disposed of the 4th place team, Wilson, by scores of 25-11 and 25-13 in the semi-finals.  We then played the winner of the other semi-finals which turned out to be the 3rd place team, Baby-Got-6-Back, the same team we defeated in the finals of the Fall 2003 session.  The results would be no different this time around as we easily cruised to victory by scores of 25-18 and 25-15.
Block, Gayle!  Block! The front court players set up a block to defend against an opponent's spike.
Dump!!!!! An opponent tries to tip the ball over the block.
Free ball! Volleyball is a constant transition between defense and offence.
In yo face! The Wee Beasties begin to wear down their opponents.
Sweet taste of victory! Enjoying their victory celebration at the Cat 'n Fiddle Pub are (L to R) Gayle Lychak, Thanh Pham, Karyn Lawrence, Troy Brown, Curt Bensmiller, and Sonny.
