Local volleyball players set for Florida trip

Players practice during a training camp in Clio on Sunday.

Three volleyball teams comprised of athletes from throughout Michigan will participate in the USA Volleyball High Performance Championships in Florida this week.

The Lakeshore High Performance athletes took part in a training camp on Sunday in Clio to prepare for the trip to Ft. Lauderdale.

The program is part of the USA Volleyball Olympic Development Pipeline and is comprised of teams in the U-13, U-15 and U-17 divisions.

Players were chosen after a series of tryouts.

"It's been really fun," said Caitlinn Pistro of Freeland. "You get to meet new players you never thought about -- just coming together, it's really fun."

The tournament starts on Tuesday.
