It was a hot day on Saturday, but the real heat was being brought with every bump, set and spike at the UD RecPlex. Volleyball is always a great way to kick off a fun-filled Battle week. Even though only four teams made it to Monday’s final four, every single team that played on Saturday had a unique display of skills, teamwork and sportsmanship. It was wonderful seeing different teams encourage each other, cheer for each other, share tips, advice, and even snacks (with each other and with other teams)… That’s what Battle of the Businesses is all about!!!

LexisNexis was the first team to battle their way to the final four. WilmerHale followed by barely edging out Cargill and McGohan Brabender (I think I still hear the “Wilmer… HALE” cheer in my sleep). Reynolds & Reynolds Nitro had both siblings Diesel and Turbo cheering them on as they edged out Sogeti and GE Aviation in a very tough competition. We loved hearing the GE cheers with every ball they blocked. Finally, after a very close match between WinSupply and Eastway, needing every last second of the third set, WinSupply took the 4th final four spot, joining LexisNexis, Reynolds Nitro and WilmerHale.

Join us at West Carrolton High School this Monday, June 5 at 6pm to cheer on the final four, and find out who will be the 2017 Battle of the Business volleyball champion. Will it be the defending champ, LexisNexis? Will Reynolds Nitro steal the title? Or will one of the W teams (or both) pull an upset and surprise us with a win (I’m looking at you WinSupply, you have “Win” right there in your name).
