DENVER – When it comes to volleyball skills – passing, setting, spiking, blocking, digging, and serving – members of Rockwood Thunder 16 White rumble with the best. And then some.
The St. Louis, Missouri-based Rockwood rolled through this year’s Colorado Crossroads tournament with reckless abandon, exploding past 10 opponents to win the 16 American Gold bracket at the Colorado Convention Center.

Rockwood captured the title and a bid to this summer’s Junior Nationals with a hard-fought 29-27, 26-24 victory against Max Performance 16 Blue of Texas. After the final point, the team erupted with joy, jumping up and down and hugging each other.
