Recently a group of 13-year-old girls boarded a plane and headed for sunny Florida.  They were there to play but this was not a relaxation or sightseeing trip.  Instead the preteens worked hard and competed.  A group of seven girls from Morgan and one from Kaysville made their way to the National Volleyball Championship after winning a tournament qualifier.
