Although the Front Range Volleyball Club Mountain Division 15’s maintained their position in their respective division, the Mountain Division 17’s had a rough day of it at the RMR-USAV Power No. 2 tourney held at various locations on the Front Range last weekend.Competing at Eaglecrest High School in Denver Sunday, the Mountain Division 17-under team found itself plagued with illness and injuries at the second Rocky Mountain Region tournament of the season. The beleaguered team of Western Slope players struggled throughout the tourney; and, although they began playing with the rhythm that had sustained their success at the initial “seeding” tournament during the latter stages of the tourney, the FRVBC team dropped all four of its matches relegating it to a lower division within its age group for the next Power League tournament.On a brighter note, however, the FRVBC Mountain Division 15’s managed to hold on to their position within their Division despite losing a close first-round match to a solid Denver area club team. The 15-under team rebounded to win their its two matches before losing a heartbreaker in their final crossover match to finish fourth in its division.Next up for the Front Range Volleyball Club Mountain Division teams is the invitation-only Omaha Invitational which will pit some of the Midwest’s best age group club teams against each other in a specialized training/tournament format.Vail, Colorado
