SAN LUIS VALLEY—Saturday was the first full day of volleyball action as every team was win action. Most of the Valley teams were in Monte Vista as the Pirates hosted the 4th Annual Monte Vista Volleyball Tournament: Intermountain League vs. Southern Peaks League. Three teams were over La Veta Pass in Walsenburg for the John Mall Tournament, Alamosa was over in Gunnison and the Sanford Indians were in Ellicott for their tournament.

It won’t be the final weekend Valley teams will be in tournament action as Alamosa High School is hosting the Intermountain League Second Annual Kickoff Classic Volleyball Tournament at Adams State University on Saturday and Centennial High School is hosting their annual Centennial Crossover Tournament on Friday morning.

Down in Monte Vista, several teams got their first taste of action as the gym was split in half with a junior varsity tournament happening on the south side of the gym and the varsity action taking place on the north side.

Several of the Valley teams struggled to begin the season but with it being the opening week, they did improve as the tournament went on and several coaches noted that they found some things that they needed to work on.

The Sangre de Cristo Thunderbirds were the team to watch as they won their matchups with ease. They opened up Thursday with a 3-set win over Centauri but Saturday's contests were 4-set wins over Monte Vista and Pagosa Springs with the Thunderbirds forcing both Pirate teams to go to extra points in at least one of the four sets.

The Sargent Farmers lost to Pagosa Springs in four, won in three against Centauri and ended the day with a win over the host Pirates in three.
