The Grand County High School volleyball team had strength in its seniors this season.

The team tied for third place in the region standings, and due to an unfortunate coin flip, ended up in the fifth seeded position for the UHSAA 3A State Tournament, according to GCHS Athletic Director Ron Dolphin. Their first match at state was against No. 1 seeded Union from Region 14 and ranked fourth in 3A. The Red Devils played well and were in each set, but fell 3-0.

Next came Judge Memorial in an elimination contest and the Red Devils were able to beat them 3-1.

Thursday morning the team faced off with Juab in the consolation semifinal, beating them 3-0.

That afternoon the Red Devils played Region 15 foe Richfield. Grand had defeated Richfield twice during the season. Set one was a decisive win for Grand, but the team struggled the next two sets. Grand regained momentum in the fourth set, winning and forcing a decisive fifth set. Here, Richfield had more success, winning the fifth set and the match.

Two seniors led a young and talented Grand County High School volleyball team this season. “The seniors have been a big part of the program and its success,” said Dolphin. “We wish Corteney Noyes and Kay Watson a tremendous amount of success in their future and hope the lessons they gained prove to be beneficial in their lives. We are excited for the future of the program with the young talented girls.”
