The View Volleyball Invitational

March 29-30: Mountain View


Top-ranked Mountain View hosted some of the highest-ranked 5A teams in the state this past Friday and Saturday at The View Volleyball Invitational including No. 6 Ironwood Ridge, No. 7 Salpointe, No.8 Sahuaro and No. 11 Pueblo.

Mountain View knocked off Pueblo and Salpointe in bracket play on Saturday to set up a championship match against Sahuaro. The Cougars took care of Casteel and Ironwood Ridge on their side of the bracket.

Sahuaro came out on top with a 2-1 (25-22, 18-25, 15-11) victory over Mountain View while Salpointe beat Ironwood Ridge to claim third place. 6A power Rincon/University outlasted Buena to claim the championship of the Silver Bracket.

Former Sahuaro basketball standout Chris Wharam was picked to replace longtime coach Sandy Novak after Novak retired last spring with the most combined wins in Southern Arizona with 673. Novak retired with a state championship and three runner-up finishes.

Wharam played basketball for another legend in former head coach Dick McConnell.

The Salpointe Lancer Volleyball Invitational is scheduled to take place from April 13-14. This will be the last sanctioned volleyball invitational from Southern Arizona of the season.
