By The Staff

A local club volleyball team earned a trip to the Amateur Athletic Union’s national championship tournament this summer.
The Arriba Sol 17 volleyball team topped Synergy of Oakland, Calif., in the championship match of the Grand Prix Tournament, hosted by the AAU in Las Vegas, Nev.
The Arriba Sol team is made up of players from Los Alamos and Española. Los Alamos players include Samantha Melton and Brianna Montaño.
The Grand Prix tournament included pool play and bracket play competition. In pool play, Arriba Sol defeated Juno (Phoenix), LVVBC (Las Vegas, Nev.) and defending tournament champion SUVA (St. George, Utah).
Arriba Sol went 4-2 in the tournament’s pool play, losing the two sets it played against SUVA, but qualified for the gold bracket with the second-place pool play finish.
In the championship bracket, however, Arriba Sol bounced back to top SUVA in the semifinal, winning in two sets.
In the final, Arriba Sol topped Synergy 2-1 to take the tournament title and qualify for the national AAU tournament.
The national championship will be in Orlando, Fla., in June.
Other Arriba Sol players include Celina Naranjo, Victoria Valdez, Samantha Fredricks, Elana Salazar, Christina Naranjo and Jackie Avitia, all from Española.
