Six teams mixed it up in heated competition during RPJ’s second volleyball fundraiser of the year. The action took place Friday night, May 27th at the Palolo District Gym. New member Brittany Santos and her band of hard-hitting teammates won the tournament with a close 26-24 win over Na’a Makekau’s team of veteran RPJ leaguers. RPJ 2011 Executive VP Jay Yamamoto and members Dawn Martin (2009 RPJ Sports Director) and Kalani Gasper also entered teams. A team comprised of KVAC Volleyball Club members rounded out the tournament field. Tourney winners won a cash prize, and the first-place and second-place teams also received Beach Body gift packs donated by RPJ 2011 President Anthony Higa. Big thanks to all of the players and a special thanks to Eve Epitome, Roger Gumerman and Elvin Berzabal for coordinating the tournament. More pics after the break.
