Competitive noises filled the courts at the Barber Physical Activities Center on May 28, 2013, as the Marine Corps Systems Command and The Basic School volleyball teams participated in the first game of the evening.

Participating in the Quantico intramural volleyball league, the 4-0 MCSC team outplayed the 1-4 TBS team and found themselves victors after the fist set.

“Volleyball is a good team sport,” said Tom Frush, MCSC coach. “I’m fortunate to have talented players.

The second set was much more competitive than the first with both teams consistently scoring throughout. MCSC kept a steady pace, rotating players throughout the set as TBS gained momentum throughout the game.

TBS brought good competition to the game tonight, said Frush.

It was anyone’s game, nearing the end of the second set. Having to win by two points, the teams passed the normal 25-point cap.

MCSC won the set 28-26 making their season record 5-0.

Some of our serving is better and our blocking has improved, said Sgt. Maj. Wayne Pedersen, coach of the TBS team.

“We need to work on passing and setting,” Pedersen said. “The effort was there and we didn’t give up.”

The intramural volleyball season aboard Marine Corps Base Quantico is half over. The regular season ends on June 13.
