UVI Bulletin Board – Sports Update

UVI Labor Day Invitational Volleyball Tournament Opens Today
The UVI Athletic Department will host the 2004 UVI Labor Day Invitational Volleyball Tournament beginning at 6 p.m. today (Friday, Sept. 3) and continuing through Sunday, Sept. 5, at the UVI Sports and Fitness Center on the St. Thomas campus.
Eight teams – four representing the U.S.V.I., three from the U.S. mainland and one from the British Virgin Islands – will participate. All matches are free and open to the public.
Associate Athletic Director Curtis Gilpin said "Virgin Islands volleyball fans can expect a high level of play." U.S.V.I. teams involved will include UVI's varsity men's and women's squads, a UVI Club team (men) and Island Mix, made up of V.I. women champions. Two of the stateside squads – the U.S. East Club team, a women's squad, and the U.S. Men's Club team – are both returning to the tournament for the third consecutive year.
A total of 11 matches are scheduled for Friday evening, Saturday morning and evening, and Sunday afternoon. Gilpin added that last year's tournament drew good crowds, especially the Sunday matches.
For more information call 693-1104.
