Spikers battle tough competition
Vail, CO Colorado
The Rocky Mountain Region USAV Power League 2 tourney wasn’t kind to the FRVBC-Mountain Division club teams last weekend as both teams played well but came up short against the more experienced teams from the Front Range.
The Mountain Division 16s, following a decent showing during the holiday weekend, played even with every team in their four matches in Littleton, as all of their matches went the full three games in the tourney’s best two-out-of-three format.
However, the fatigued 16s squad went 2-2 on the day, finishing third in its pool. On the bright side, the young Mountain Division team won its crossover match to stay in Division II of the RMR-USAV 16-under Power League.
Down in Colorado Springs, the 14s weren’t quite so lucky. They weren’t able to keep up the momentum that they had at the conclusion of the RMR-Power League 1 where they moved up to Division II play after winning the Division III competition. Playing a little bit scared, the 14s lost all four of their matches to move them back to Division III play for the next Power League competition to be held March 4.
The FRVBC-Mountain Division 16s team is made up of players from all over the Western Slope including the Vail Valley, Roaring Fork Valley, Glenwood Springs, and New Castle. The FRVBC-Mountain Division 14s are made of players from the Vail Valley and Summit County.
The Front Range Volleyball Club-Mountain Division teams train three days a week at Berry Creek Middle School in Edwards.
