The Southern Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - BY DANETTE DOO­LEY

The pop­u­la­tion of St. John’s swelled by over 4,000 peo­ple Oct. 28-29 when the New­found­land and Labrador Vol­ley­ball As­so­ci­a­tion hosted its an­nual Vol­leyfest 2011. It’s de­scribed as the largest school-based tour­na­ment in the coun­try. The as­so­ci­a­tion capped par­tic­i­pa­tion at 176 teams, which is a record for the event. That’s al­most 2,200 ath­letes from Grades 7 to Level III, plus 50 to 70 coaches and of­fi­cials and about 25 con­ven­ers.

Christ the King Cru­saders of Rushoon was one of 176 teams com­pet­ing in the New­found­land and Labrador Vol­ley­ball As­so­ci­a­tion’s an­nual ‘ Vol­leyfest’ tour­na­ment and the only Burin Penin­sula en­try.
