The volleyball doubles squad consisting of Jeremy Casebeer/Chaim Schalk defeated the squad of Taylor Crabb/Jake Gibb, 2-0 (21-19, 21-18), in the 2019 AVP Seattle Open men’s finals on June 23 at Lake Sammamish State Park in Issaquah.

“Seattle is an amazing place, it’s close to home for me, so the support here was amazing,” Schalk said. “Today we were able to vary what we were doing defensively, kept them on their toes more, and it worked for us.”

Casebeer concurred with his teammate’s sentiment.

“It was amazing, we just played loose. We’re on the same game plan, we were aggressive and we played strong,” Casebeer said.
