The post-season is upon the All-Army Men’s and Women’s Volleyball teams as they transition from training to tournament game play. On March 2, the All-Army Men’s Volleyball Team arrived to Fort Bragg from their trial camp location of Fort Indiantown Gap, Pennsylvania. The All-Army Men’s and Women’s Volleyball teams made their final team player selections and both squads are gearing up at the Ritz-Epps Physical Fitness Center for the Armed Forces Men’s and Women’s Volleyball Championships, set for March 6 through 8.
“We arrived in town on Saturday and had a scrimmage on Sunday,” said Chief Warrant Officer 4 Jorge Negron, 311th Signal Command, Fort Shafter, Hawaii, head coach of the All-Army Men’s Volleyball Team. “We are preparing for Wednesday, the start of several days of round-robin competition, to eventually crown the best. The men’s team is strong and ready. We wish everyone competing the best of luck.”
The Armed Forces Volleyball Championships will bring men's and women's volleyball teams from four branches of the military — Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force — in a head-to-head championship, competing against one another to claim victory for its respectable service branch. Volleyball matches will be held at Fort Bragg’s Ritz-Epps Physical Fitness Center.
“We have regular practice this morning, where both men’s and women’s teams will work on passing and serving deep, in preparation for the start of the championships Wednesday morning,” said Sgt. 1st Class Sherri Lagasse-Randall, Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 165th Military Police Company, 705th Military Police Battalion, Fort Leavenworth, Missouri, head coach of the All-Army Women’s Volleyball Team. “Both teams had a great showing at their scrimmage games this past weekend. We are prepared and look forward to the championships.”
