CRESTVIEW — The 14U Club Challengers Volleyball Team participated in the 12th Annual Jax Jam Feb. 9 and 10 in Jacksonville.

After finishing third in their first two tournaments of the season, Director Angela Etheridge and Head Coach Ray Lovelace decided to test the players by entering them into the 15U division of 24 teams at this widely renowned tournament.

The Challengers' only loss came in their first match on Saturday, against the 904 Elite National 15U Team that would remain undefeated and capture the elite Open Gold Division Title.

"As for this younger team of 'Challengers', they won the remainder of their matches and captured the Gold Division Championship! This is certain to be only the first championship for the Challengers teams this season, with a total of 8 teams with players 7-14 yrs old," a team spokesperson said.
