Moab’s youth volleyball teams traveled to Cortez and Dolores, Colo., last weekend to compete in a regional tournament

Two seventh- through eighth-grade teams and three third- through sixth-grade teams from the Moab City Recreation Department program participated in the event, according to coach Deb Hren.

In the A division, the Psycho Spikers from Moab took first place over all out of 32 teams attending the tournament.

Moab’s Speedy Spikers also took first place in their B division and they only had five players on their team, Hren said.

The VB Spikers struggled all day and took last place in their D division competition. That team also was a player short, with only five players competing.

In the older division Indestructible finished in 12th place out of 18 teams and In10sity finished the day with two wins and two losses.

This weekend, the teams will travel to Blanding for the last tournament for the younger group of players. The older group has three tournaments remaining, according to Hren. Those teams will travel to competitions in Mancos, Colo., in early March and will end their season with a home tournament in Moab on March 15.
