On Oct. 5 and 6, the Grand County High School volleyball team competed at the Sevier Valley Invite in Richfield. The Red Devils won six of the shortened matches and dropped two.

The tournament matches were played as best of three sets rather than five like a normal game. On Friday, Grand lost the opening match 0-2 to North Summit. The Red Devils bounced back the next game and beat Millard 2-0. Grand lost to region rival Richfield 1-2 in the last game on Friday.

After the tough start, Grand had a great Saturday, winning all five games. First Grand bested North Sevier 2-1, then beat Rich 2-0, followed by a 2-0 win over Carbon, then a 2-1 victory against Monticello. Finally, the Red Devils finished the tournament with a 2-1 win over Delta.

The volleyball team will finish the regular season with three road games against region opponents. On Friday, Oct. 12, Grand will take on Richfield and then South Sevier the next day. The final game of the regular season on Tuesday, Oct. 16 will be in Blanding against the San Juan Broncos. Grand is currently in sixth place out of seven teams in Region 15. By beating Manti, Grand has already earned a place in the state championship tournament on Oct. 24 and 25 at Utah Valley University in Orem.
