East Enders serve up good times

West Bay is not the only
district with a volleyball league as East End
has kept pace.

In fact Saturday saw the third week
of the East End volleyball league.

Three matches were played at the
East End Civic Centre and featured teams with names like “Sharks”, “EE Guns”
and the “Terminators.”

League organizer and East End
Sports Committee coordinator Vernie Watler-Harris talked about those games.

“The adults are always anxious to
play and the younger ones come out consistently. Saturday nights have become a
time most of the district look forward to. Leading up to last weekend there has
been cases where the players stay beyond the proposed ending time to do more
volleyball.

“The East End Guns have proven to
be one of the stronger teams in the competition as they have a lot of national
team players like Curtis Richards.

“All in all everyone is enjoying
their time out and we’re seeing a lot of good participation.”

In all some eight teams are in the
league and feature a mixture of up-and-coming sports persons and grizzled
veterans.

The top teams at the moment are the
Terminators with 110 points scored and Top Notch with 76 points scored.

This coming Saturday sees the next
set of games from 6:30pm. Top Notch plays Team Three, Team OJ faces the EE Guns
and Here2Stay battles Ridgefield.

Games in the league started January
30 and are expected to continue until roughly March 13.

The volleyball league is one of two
sports initiatives currently ongoing in East End.
Youngsters 14 years old and under are taking swim lessons with Ocean Frontiers
every Saturday.

East End officials like Watler-Harris say the swim program has
been a hit with the youth. On average some 8-10 kids beyond the registered amount
show up each week to swim.
