UNR volleyball to be at Zephyr Cove
The University of Nevada volleyball will practice at the beach courts at Zephyr Cove Resort from 10:30 a.m. to noon on Friday. The Wolf Pack will then offer a free one-hour clinic to children starting at 12:30 p.m. before a short autograph session.
Nevada returns four starters from last year’s 18-13 team that reached the NCAA Tournament for the fourth time in five seasons. With a incoming freshman recruiting class ranked among the top 25 in the nation, the Wolf Pack are expected to be one of the top teams in the Western Athletic Conference this season.
After Friday’s events at Zephyr Cove Resort, Nevada will spend three more days training on South Shore before it opens the 2006 season Aug. 25-26 at the Montana State Tournament.
‘Babes’ climbing clinic scheduled
South Shore-based outdoors group “Babes in the Backountry” will be hosting two rock climbing clinics on Saturday, Aug. 19 at Phantom Spires near Strawberry.
The beginner clinic will focus on belaying, rope maintenance, communicating with partners and getting familiar with climbing hardware. The intermediate/advanced clinic is designed for climbers with a general understanding of basic climbing techniques and are interested in learning how to follow on multi-pitch climbs.
Cost is $120 per day. For more information, contact Rosie Werner at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (530) 307-9103. More information can be found on the group’s official Web site at http://www.babesinthebackcountry.com.
