United States Merchant Marine Academy midshipmen Edward Fournier '14 and Derek Britton '14 competed in the National Collegiate Sand Volleyball Association Northeast Regional Championship this past weeekend in Long Beach, NY.
The Kings Point duo was playing for a chance to represent USMMA at the National Championship in Santa Barbara, CA. Recently, the NCAA added women's sand volleyball and this event was one of the first events held for men. Fournier and Britton played well finishing third in pool play. Unfortunately, it wan't good enough to move them on to the medal round.
The two will have a few more opportunities to qualify for the National Championship later this summer.
