AXO Wins Third ASVT 2009: Partiers Bask

AXO Wins Third ASVT

Partiers bask in the sun at the All-Sorority Volleyball Tournament.
The sixth annual event benefited the Kidney Cancer Association. The promise of scantily-clad volleyball players drew thousands of eager voyeurs downtown Saturday for the sixth annual All Sorority Volleyball Tournament. According to Bernstein, this year’s event proceeded without a hitch. “There are always going to be some complaints,” Bernstein, a third-year environmental studies major said. “We can’t please everyone, but we did our best. We did really well. It was the most people we’ve ever had. Everything ran smoothly and was well organized, and everyone had a lot of fun.” Bernstein noted that 24 teams – including one non-panhellenic sorority and three non-UCSB teams from UCLA, UC Davis and Cal Poly – participated in the tournament. The addition of these new teams, he said, was a boon to the event and demonstrates the growing popularity of the tournament. This year’s tournament also featured the first-ever “Miss ASVT” competition, which awarded the winner $100 to donate to the charity of her choice. According to Bernstein, contenders for the “Miss ASVT” title first had to submit a one-page letter prior detailing their community involvement and dedication. This letter, he said, accounted for fifty percent of the competitor’s score.
Erica Kwiatkowski, a second-year political science major and Alpha Phi member, was crowned Miss ASVT.
