    Reggie Wong Park in Boston, MA was the site of the annual volleyball tournament that is part of the August Moon Festival in Chinatown. 

    Dozens of current SMASH players and campers (boys and girls), SMASH alumni, and SMASH coaches took part in the unique event that features local volleyball clubs like the Hurricanes, Knights, Freemasons, and more. 

    In the 9-Man final on Sunday, the Knights overcame the defending champion 'Canes to take the tournament trophy.

    Some teams will be headed to Fort Lauderdale, FL over Labor Day Weekend for the NACIVT, where an assembled team of female Boston athletes will take part in the first-ever exhibition match of Women's 9v9 volleyball.
