On Sunday, March 26, TVP 16 and TVP 18 crossed the Potomac River to nearby George Mason University with anticipation to compete among the best teams in Maryland and Virginia. After a solid day in the gym, just short of earning a tournament playoff spot, each team returned home with respect and gratitude for the tournament hosts: the coaches, staff and players of the George Mason University Men's Volleyball Team. The Mason Patriots took time during their home stretch to defend their EIVA Championship to organize a fantastic day of junior boys volleyball....and to officiate the matches! Grow the Game!
