Hinthorn, Callaham 8th at beach volleyball tourney

For Connor Hinthorn and Kaleb Callaham, this wasn’t your usual summer trip to the beach.

The Skyview High School seniors teamed up to compete at the USA Volleyball Junior Beach Championships July 31 through Aug. 2 in Hermosa Beach, Calif.

Hinthorn and Callaham placed eighth among 16 teams in the 19-under tournament, which included teams from the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and the Czech Republic.

The Vancouver duo qualified for their first international tournament by trying out for USA Volleyball’s A1 program. They were given a wild-card berth and were among the lower seeds in the tournament.

But that’s didn’t stop Hinthorn and Callaham from winning two of three matches in pool play to advance to the medal round.

After winning their first medal-round match in two sets, they lost a quarterfinal match in three sets to Dane Johnson and Jason Gibbs, who went on to win their second consecutive championship. That knocked them into the match to decide fifth and eighth place.
