Special to The R-C |

A mixed team of Carson Valley seven, eighth and ninth grade players captured second-place last Saturday at the inaugural Alissa Vickers Memorial Volleyball Tournament in Dayton.

The local team, comprised of Jobs Peak Volleyball Club, and Northern Nevada Juniors, plus Carson Valley and Pau-Wa-Lu middle school players, was unbeaten en route to the championship match at Dayton High School. They faced opposing teams comprised of students and adults.

“These girls made it to the championship match with no losses and had to play a mixed team with three students and three adults,” coach Rick Jenkins noted. “With the three adults being able to block easily on a ladies height net the girls did struggle a little bit and ended up losing in a close game.”

The tournament was held to benefit the Vickers family after the death of Alissa Mae Vickers, 25, in Spartanburg, S.C. She was a former Dayton High School athlete who played volleyball, basketball and soccer before graduating in 2010.
