Spikers shine at qualifier

Daily Staff Report
Vail, CO Colorado

The Front Range Volleyball Club’s Rocky Mountain Division teams, which train out of Berry Creek Middle School in Edwards, recently competed at the Colorado Crossroads Junior National Qualifier held at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.

Produced by the Front Range Volleyball Club of Englewood, the Colorado Crossroads is the largest of the nine different National Qualifiers held around the country throughout March and April, attracting more than 10,000 junior girls volleyball players from all over the United States to Denver to compete for spots at the USA Volleyball Junior Olympics Girls Championships, which will be held from June 26 to July 5 in Dallas.

The FRVBC-Mountain Division 15-under team navy squad had the best finish of the three Mountain Division teams, taking second in its pool on the first day of competition and qualifying for Division I play for the next two days of competition. Although many of the 15s squad are still in middle school, the Mountain Division 15s finished the tournament with a 4-4 match record and earned a credible 35th place out of the 123 teams competing in their age group.

After some early losses, the Mountain Division 17-Crimson squad rebounded well by going 3-0 on the second day of pool play to finish 5-3 in match play and take 63rd among 112 teams.

The Mountain Division 14-Ruby team went 3-4, overall to finish 61st out of 108 teams. All three teams will resume play in the Rocky Mountain Region-USAV Power League on March 30 at various venues on the Front Range.
