Chris Chandler Volleyball Invitational
The tournament is named in honor of longtime Menlo School volleyball program supporter Chris Chandler, the husband of Menlo School dance teacher Jan Chandler, and father of Courtney, also a Menlo dance instructor, Brittany and Tyler. Chris, along with Jan, supported Menlo volleyball, after hearing from one of Jan’s dancers/volleyball players that fan attendance was low at games. He even flew down to Southern California to watch the Knights play Loyola Marymount in the 2000 state championship. Chris died in a pedestrian accident in 2010.
