The Rock Canyon High School (RCHS) varsity level volleyball team took first place at the University of Northern Colorado Greeley team camp. After coming into the top bracket in last place, the team worked its way through the top ranked teams to see Mountain Vista High School in the finals. Laryssa Myers of Hidden Pointe said, “The camp highlight was coming in as the underdogs with only two returning varsity players and then rising to the challenge and winning that tournament for the second year in a row.”
Alex Leitner, a junior, added, “I have really high hopes for this season especially after this win. I think if we play like we did on the third day of the team camp, I can definitely see us making it to state and doing really well this season.”
Coach Angela Nylund Hanson said, “The teams at this camp are very competitive and it is nice to see what the other teams look like before the season. We are very proud of the girls for their accomplishments at the UNC team camp and we are looking forward to another great season.”
