U-17s play back into Division I

Daily Staff Report
Vail, CO Colorado
Special to the DailyThe Front Range Volleyball Club-Mountain Division U-17s moved into Division I competition after a good outing in Lakewood last weekend.

The Front Range Volleyball Cub-Mountain Division teams were back in action last weekend as the Rocky Mountain Region-USAV Power League resumed.

Playing at Lakewood, the Mountain Division 17-Crimson squad played itself back into the Elite Eight Division I bracket by finishing a second in Division II at the RMR-USAV Power No. 4 Tournament.

“The girls came through with steady play in tight situations” said coach Aaron Shepardson.

Citing the play of Anna Padget and Whitney Van Voorst, the top point scorers on the day; Kelsey Plath, the top defender; and Hannah Ellison, the top passer, Shepardson said that “It was fun to see us stay so steady throughout the day. All players contributed as well as some great game-changing performances.”

Down in Colorado Springs at the Colorado Springs Christian School, the FRVBC-Mountain Division 14-unders weren’t faring quite as well.

After a strong performance in its last tournament, the youngest Mountain Division team struggled to maintain a consistent level of play. The 14-Ruby squad went 0-3 in bracket play and will move back to Division IV play in its age group in the RMR-USAV Power League. There are eight levels of divisional play in the Power League.

All three of the FRVBC-Mountain Division teams will compete at the Colorado Crossroads Junior National Qualifier in Denver during the next two weekends.
