Northdale Middle School wins first ever staff volleyball tournament

Staff volleyball tournament (11/20/19) A team from Northdale Middle School (NMS) has won the first-ever Anoka-Hennepin, all-staff volleyball tournament.


NMS actually had two teams in the inaugural event, with both playing each other in the championship of the nine-team tournament. See photos of the event.


Other teams participating included Anoka High School, Champlin Park High School, the district’s Compass Programs, and Oxbow Creek, Brookside, Monroe and Adams elementary schools.


The tournament, which was held Nov. 16 at Northdale Middle School in Coon Rapids, was hosted by the district’s employee wellness program, Where Wellness Matters, in an effort to get staff running, moving and bonding. All told, roughly 100 staff participated.


Next up is the all-staff dodgeball tournament, which is set for February, also at Northdale. Email derrick.williams@ahschools.us for more information or to sign a team up.
