August 10th, 2016, brought a dark and stormy night for the Benzinger Park Volleyball Playoffs; however, the weather did not stop the twelve teams, who made the playoffs, from both North and South League as they battled to take home the grand prize of a T-shirt and first place trophy. The winner from the North League was once again dominated by the George Foreman Grillers, who won their fourth consecutive championship. The Grillers (shown left) consisted of Kyle Schneider, Darren Simons, Dylan Reigel, Karly Carnovale, Kelsey Schwabenbauer-Morey, and Lexie Meholic. The South League championship could have been considered a shocker to most, but a Benzinger faithful wouldn’t be surprised as the third seed Blockbusters won their third championship in team history. The Blockbusters (shown right) was comprised of Rick Fox, Jordyn Fox, Trisha Bauer, Keith Simon, Alan Hasselman, Sherry Hasselman, Dude Bauer, Yvonne Kastner, and Mark Anthony. Thank you to all 26 teams who competed this summer, and we hope to see everyone plus more next year!
Benzinger Park hosted their last volleyball game, of summer 2016, on August 12th with the High School League coming to an end. The championship was a hard fought battle between Team CC and the Sandbox Tropics. Team CC consisting of Cassidy Cunningham, Reilly Herzing, Kara Detsch, Ryan Heary, Frankie Singer, Nate DaCanal, and Gabe Kraus, was crowned Benzinger Park High School Volleyball Champions. Team CC received a custom designed t-shirt, from Dave’s Pro Shop in St. Marys, along with a first place trophy. The Sandbox Tropics comprised of Taylor Newton, Isaac Wortman, Mark Vallone, Maddie Jansen, Leo Gregory, and Adam Piccolo did not leave empty handed as they took home a second place trophy. Thank you to all High School teams who competed in the league, and we hope to see everyone back next year whether its High School or Co-ed Adult League!
