Da-Yeh University, located in Central Taiwan, was recently the site of an intercollegiate faculty and staff volleyball competition that extended from June 20-22. For three days, men’s and women’s mixed teams from nine universities around the country vied fiercely for the chance to be crowned champions. In the end (as with last year), the championship went to Tamkang University.

The National Intercollegiate Faculty and Staff Volleyball Cup was designed to promote exercise among faculty and staff at Taiwanese universities. Participating universities in this year’s competition included Tamkang University, the De Lin Institute of Technology, Chung Hwa University of Medical Technology, National Central University, Chinese Cultural University, Chung Yuan Christian University, Providence University, Ming Chi University of Technology, and Da-Yeh University.

This year’s competition adopted a best-of-three-sets, round robin format and featured many seasoned volleyball players. Yet the Tamkang contingent displayed team spirit to outplay and overwhelm all opposition, and return home as deserved champions.
