Volleyball was dubbed Mintonette because to its resemblance to badminton. However, Alfred Halstead eventually dubbed it volleyball since the goal of the game was to volley the ball back and forth over a net.

Last weekend, Entigrity hosted a Volleyball Tournament (EVT), and it was amazing to get up early and warm up for an intense Volleyball tournament. Both teams are fiercely competitive, and the last set went down to the wire.

The most intriguing part was when one of the strikers made a mistake while both teams were on the same point, he eventually crossed the goal line, and the other team won. The VA squad was ecstatic; they had a large audience behind them, but they lost because of that gaffe.

Everyone performed an excellent job, and the winners received trophies. Congratulations to the 2021 tournament champions "Chicago Untouchables," as well as everyone who participated in this great competition.
