Lawton Fury hosts USAV volleyball tournament

Now to volleyball, where the Lawton Fury volleyball club hosted a United States Association of Volleyball sanctioned tournament at MacArthur High School. The tournament included ten club teams involving volleyball players 16 years of age from across Oklahoma, as well as from Texas. Tournament Director Katherine Shelton explains that this tournament is not only a fundraiser for the Lawton Fury, but also a way to expand an appreciation for the sport in southwest Oklahoma.

“We also do want to bring…more awareness of volleyball here in Southwest Oklahoma," says Shelton. "Just because…it’s not as huge of an impact as other sports are. And so, we’re just bringing awareness and promoting volleyball here in Southwest Oklahoma.”

In the evening, the tournament concluded with gold and bronze medal games.
