Cardinal Invite

A message from Coach K regarding the 16th Annual Cardinal Invite:

I cannot thank all of the parent and player volunteers enough for the effort that was put into hosting the Cardinal Invite this weekend.  The JV Red and JV Black players and coaches were superstars, all the parents were fantastic, and the event went EXTREMELY well!  It is hard to put into words how much work goes into a large event like that and this year was even more challenging since we could not do it last season, but the collective effort of all was amazing.  I had more people than I can count tell me how well run the tournament was and how much they are looking forward to next season’s event already.  This included all the officials, which in this time of official shortages is huge.  This tournament is one of the premier boys volleyball tournaments in the state (10 of the top 13 teams in the state were here) and is seen as a big late-season indicator on who the favorites to win state are shaping up to be.  Again, I thank you so much for everything.  We as a Cardinal community shone brightly and people really enjoyed what we did for them.  It was awesome.

The 16th Annual Boys Volleyball Cardinal Invite will be held on Saturday, September 25, 2021! Mark your calendars.
