Spiking in the mud for charity

Everyone started the 24th annual Mud Volleyball Tournament with a clean shirt, but few leave with one. The event was held at Beulah Park on July 25. Above, team mates Mike Sweeder (front) and Jim Toto use the mud for some post game celebrating. This year’s tournament featured 48 courts, 206 teams, nearly 2,100 players, 35 referees and over 80 volunteers. Proceeds benefit the Epilepsy Foundation of Central Ohio.

"The agony of defeat" was being experienced by Tim Shriner of the Hook and Book team at the start of a long day of mud volleyball.
