Bear River senior captain and middle hitter Kati Gibbs (32) goes up for a spike against Uintah in the 4A state volleyball tournament Tuesday, Oct. 29 at Utah Valley University in Orem.

The Bear River volleyball team wrapped up its season last week in the 4A state tournament, dropping two matches at Utah Valley University to cap off a challenging season.

After taking down Canyon View 3-1 in Garland on Oct. 26 to advance to the tournament, the Bears traveled to Orem on Tuesday, Oct. 29, where they faced No. 1-seeded Juan Diego in the second round of the playoffs.

After dropping the first set to the Soaring Eagle, Bear River bounced back and took the second set, 25-14, but ended up losing the match by a score of 3-1. That dropped the Bears into the consolation bracket, where they came up short in a 3-0 loss to Uintah later in the day.

Fellow Region 11 school Green Canyon won the tournament 3-1 over Desert Hills, which pulled upsets over Juan Diego and Sky View to reach the championship match.

Bear River finished the season with an overall mark of 5-16, including a 2-8 record and a fifth-place finish in region play.
