Defense Threat Reduction Agency demonstrated its unit cohesion and precision offensive execution, when it downed Aerospace Data Facility-East, 2 games to 1, in the FY20 intramural volleyball season opener, March 3 at Wells Field House. DTRA, one of the most successful units in Belvoir’s intramural sports leagues, has more Commander’s Cup trophies at its headquarters than any other unit on post.

In classic form, DTRA took command of the court from the opening serve of the first match, fully using its roster of veteran athletes. ADF-E managed to stay within 5 points but, in the end, DTRA emerged on top, 21-15.

In match 2, however, ADF-E, always a major contender across the spectrum of sports, came roaring back with a string of blistering spikes early in the exchange to establish a strong lead. Despite a serious effort on DTRA’s part to thwart their opponents’ gain, ADF-E maintained momentum for the duration and stepped into the winner’s circle with a 21-19 win, balancing the 3-game series at a match apiece.

ADF-E’s designs to clinch the series, however, came to a screeching halt, when DTRA unveiled a revamped offensive approach, executing a surgical choreography of bump-set-spike cycles that quickly overwhelmed their opponents. The onslaught continued throughout the exchange, with DTRA closing the series with a 21-9 win.

Intramural volleyball games are played Tuesdays and Thursdays, starting at 6:10 p.m. at Wells Field House.
