Fifth-Annual Fiesta on Siesta Key

Players from one of the non-NCAA sanctioned teams.

The Fiesta on Siesta Key collegiate sand volleyball tournament returned for its fifth year last weekend, April 12-14. Hosting over 300 college players from 25 colleges and universities, some with officially sanctioned sand programs and others just for the experience, the tournament featured several different layers of competition and is recognized as the largest collegiate sand volleyball tournament in the country.

On Friday, USAV Beach hosted a High Performance national team tryout and there were dual matches between schools with NCAA-sanctioned programs. Saturday marked the beginning of the Siesta Sand Pairs Challenge and the Fiesta Team Cup, in which partners competed from the sanctioned programs as well as from school with only indoor teams. Jacksonville University dominated the pairs portion of the event, with their No. 1 pair of Tyalor Nyquist and Sammie Strausbaugh winning the gold division and their No. 2 pair, Niatha Cullen and Kendall Courtney, winning the silver. In the team cup, Florida State had the most pairs make it to the gold division, so they were determined the top team.

Next year, the event will take place on April 11-13, and all of the schools who competed this year have said they will be back again.
