Durango’s economy is Diggin’ It

Tournament brings talent – and tourism – into our town
Angel Benavidez and the New Mexico Cactus, one of 72 youth volleyball teams in town, defeated the Albuquerque Rebels in the 13-year-old bracket at the Student Life Center at Fort Lewis College on Saturday during the two-day Diggin’ It in Durango tournament.
Terene Foutz, executive director of tournament-host Four Corners Volleyball Club, said 72 teams are participating in the Diggin’ It in Durango volleyball tournament this year – almost triple the number from the tournament’s first year. And all of them spend money right here in Durango. “We just love sporting events like this one,” said John Cohen, executive director of the Durango Area Tourism Office.
Things are looking up for Siena Miller and the entire town of Durango this weekend. The Diggin’ It in Durango youth volleyball tournament brought in 72 teams – such as Miller’s Vail Volleyball Club – to eat, drink, sleep and play. The line at Serious Texas BBQ, for example, snaked outside the door into the parking lot during Saturday’s lunch rush.
