JAMESTOWN, N.D. (NewsDakota.com) – The Young Professionals of Jamestown (YPJ) hosted their annual March Meltdown Volleyball Tournament on March 9th and 10th.
The tournament helps YPJ with their mission of promoting growth and networking among other young professionals in Jamestown. Teams have traveled from Fargo, Bismarck, Minot, Devils Lake, and other states including Minnesota.
YPJ Member Lindsey Vogel says they had 27 teams register, but 24 participated due to the weather.
“Turnout was pretty good, we were hoping for quite a bit more,” Vogel stated. “But we were still happy where we ended.”
The tournament featured 4 divisions – co-Ed 4s, co-Ed 6s, which played Saturday and men’s and women’s 4s that played today.
“Each division was very competitive and fun to watch. Some are former Jimmie players so it’s fun for them to come back and many didn’t get to play in The Newman arena so they love having that experience.”
Vogel says the tournament brought in a lot of local teams, but continues to bring in more from other states.
“We had local players, a lot from Bismarck and Fargo area, some in western Minnesota and the farthest came from Sioux Falls. We can’t wait to do it again next year and hopefully have better weather.”
