ELKO – What started out as simply a dream for many has finally become a reality.
Elko County officially has its very first volleyball club travel team.
With quite an impressive first-year turnout, tryouts took place on November 17 and three teams were established, consisting of a total of 30 enthusiastic girls and six passionate coaches.
Ruby Mountain Volleyball Club is a true representation of an Elko County Club, due to the fact that the athletes who comprise the teams are from Flag View Intermediate School, Adobe Middle School, Elko High School, Spring Creek High School, Wells High School and Battle Mountain High School.
The teams compete in the SLC AAU circuit in the age groups of 14U, 15U and 17U.
In its short time of competing over the past four weekends, the club has successfully brought home gold, silver and bronze medals.
The growth of the club, both as individual athletes and as a whole, has already been tremendous, and the teams don’t even wrap up their seasons until April.
The RMVC athletes are truly embracing their teams and community pride, and most recently shared some Valentine’s Day cheer with the residents of Highland Manor.
Ruby Mountain Volleyball Club would like to thank the Police Athletic League, Performance Athletic Center, Flag View Intermediate, Southside Elementary, Adobe Middle School and the Elko Colony Health & Wellness Center for their support in getting the program going.
