2016 Tooele County Volleyball

The recently-completed high school volleyball season may not have seen any of Tooele County’s three squads bring home a trophy from the state tournament, but each showed improvement throughout the season.

Stansbury finished third in Region 10 under the guidance of first-year coach Erika Smith. The Stallions advanced to the second day of the state tournament before falling to Dixie in four sets in the consolation bracket. Stansbury will return the majority of this year’s squad in 2017, losing three seniors to graduation.

Tooele also advanced to the state tournament as the fourth-place team from Region 10. While it was a rebuilding season for the Buffaloes, they were competitive in region play and got stronger as the season went along.

Grantsville missed the postseason, finishing fifth in the region, but put up a fight in every match. The Cowboys took Stansbury to five sets both times they played the Stallions, and split a pair of region matches with Tooele.
