The intramural volleyball team for Marine Corps System Command faced the Marine Corps Recruiting Command at Barber Physical Activity Center on May 10. MCSC dominated MCRC, winning the game after a two-match series.

“We are all very athletic,” said Charles Smunt, head coach for MCRC. “But not everyone knows the rules of the game.”

Their unfamiliarity with the techniques and rules cost them the first game, 25 to 6. MCRC repeatedly got the whistle for

getting into the net, killing a served ball and even being out of the court at the start of the game.

“This is my first time coaching the team,” said Smunt. “We are just out here to have fun.”

Although the team struggled with knowledge and following the rules, they showed their athletic ability in the second game diving after balls and being aggressive when it came to the net. But, not knowing the proper techniques, they were unable to accomplish getting the ball where it needed to go. MCRC lost the second game, 25 to 16.

“I wasn’t happy overall with the way we played,” said Tom Frush, head coach for MCSC. “Being experienced makes it hard to play a team that doesn’t know the game. We really had to focus on our game and make sure we had three touches on the ball before sending it back over.”

MCSC is the only undefeated team in the league and has a three-game winning streak in the four-team league.

Top Shot of the Week

Icy Chopawamsic Creek

MARINE CORPS BASE QUANTICO, Va. — The sub-freezing temperatures in the last week have caused Chopawamsic Creek to freeze over, as seen in this photo from Feb. 23, 2015. It has not been cold enough for a long enough period of time to make the creek, or any other body of water in the Quantico area, safe enough to walk on.
