CCJ HOSTS ANOTHER SUCCESSFULL CACTUS CLASSIC INVITATIONAL
Over 100 teams from Arizona, California, New Mexico, Texas, and Mexico participated in the 19th Annual Cactus Classic Invitational tournament, hosted by Club Cactus Volleyball. An army of CCJ parents, coaches, and volunteers help manage 456 volleyball matches on 20 courts at three different sites. The event ran like clockwork and gave all CCJ players a chance to play in a high-level National event in their own backyard!
Many CCJ teams had the opportunity to play teams from Mexico, creating a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spread goodwill among the two countries while playing volleyball. Smiles were seen before and after each match while the players exchanged conversations and gifts.
CCJ earned six trophies at this year's event. Taking home hardware was CCJ 18-Mizuno (18U Saguaro Division semi-finalist, third overall), CCJ 16-Mizuno (16U Saguaro Division runner-up, second overall), and CCJ 12-Mizuno (12U Saguaro Division semi-finalist, fourth overall) that finished in the top divisions; other teams were CCJ 16-Navy (16U Octotillo Division second place); CCJ 16-Black (Yucca Division second place); CCJ 16-Red (Pincushion Division second place); and CCJ 16-White (Octotillo Division second place).
The 2015 event will mark the club's 20th Annual Cactus Classic Invitational and will return home to the Tucson Convention Center with all matches under one roof. Join CCJ for the party in 2015!
