Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory’s (CSHL’s) 32nd annual Volleyball League season is in full swing. Eight teams sit at the midway point of a quest to capture the coveted Tiernan Cup and a year’s worth of bragging rights. Only a few short weeks remain before the playoffs.

Returning champions Breast Friends, led by Marygrace Trousdell and Samantha Henry from the dos Santos lab, seek a repeat of last year’s upset victory. P.E. Revival, led by CSHL Assistant Professor Hannah Meyer and Caryn Koza, look to avenge their loss and bring home a second championship in three years.

Volleyball is a long-standing tradition at CSHL. It brings together scientists, students, and staff from all walks of Laboratory life. Non-league matches have been held as far back as the ’70s. The official summer league started around 1990. Players included scientists from Nobel laureate Barbara McClintock’s lab and then-Associate Professor Adrian Krainer.

Will a former champ recapture the crown? Or, like many lab experiments, will this season yield unexpected results? Keep an eye on CSHL’s social media accounts for further updates. And check back in the fall as we bring you a video recap of this year’s finals.
