Local Women Win Gold

A group of local women recently earned Gold Medal Honors at the 2010 Empire State Senior Games Volleyball Competition. The volleyball games, normally held at Cortland’s Lusk Field House, were instead played at the Women’s Building on the SU Campus due to construction at the Cortland site.

13 teams from across the state participated in the event open to adults, 50 years and older. The Championship Gold Diggers’ Team not only won the tournament but did not lose a game/match all day. The team is comprised of women who play together in local leagues and tournaments.

By winning this tournament the team automatically earns a berth to the National Senior Games to be held in Houston, Texas next summer.
