Area girl in Utah V-ball classic

Corona del Sol High School student Aubrey Pancratz is joining her Arizona Region of USA Volleyball teammates in the high performance Park City Volleyclassic July 23 through 28.

The team will compete at the site of the 2002 Winter Olympics against other high performance teams from the region.

According to event planners, the high performance program is a pipeline for talent from the regional to national level, with the most talented reaching the Olympics level of USA Volleyball.

Arizona has the only girls youth team in the program. Players represent areas across the state.

Last year the team won third place in the first annual high performance tournament in Colorado Springs, Colo.
