Volleyball Draws CenturyLink Crowd


Hundreds of high school volleyball players wrapped-up the final day of competition Monday in the massive tournament at the CenturyLink Center.

There were 450 teams in town from across the nation and even Canada for the ASICS President's Day Classic.

One of the big draws for the players is actually who is watching from the sidelines.

Tournament Director Tony Carrow said, “It's an opportunity for them to be seen by the college coaches, We have 200-plus colleges represented here that are out on the courts, recruiting, watching players that are going to be coming to their school next year or players for the future."

Monday was bracket play, so the matches were more evenly paired between teams. Two other venues hosted team play, as well.
