Fort Belvoir once again hosted one of the most action-packed sport­ing events of the year, Saturday at Wells Field House.

The 2019 Coed Invitational Vol­leyball Tournament, sponsored by MWR, aimed to salute the Military District of Washington and give Service members and civilians from area military installations and ath­letic clubs a chance to participate in some friendly competition.

Players representing Joint Base Andrews and U.S. Coast Guard Headquarters competed against two Belvoir teams in a one-day, double-elimination tournament.

Justin Fitzgerald, Fort Belvoir intramural sports program coordi­nator and sports facility manager, hosted the tournament that began at 8 a.m. and ran well into the af­ternoon.

According to Fitzgerald, the an­nual event is meant to give players from all over the MDW a chance to come out and compete on a level a little higher than intramurals and to build some camaraderie.
