Jordyn Poulter's family watches match, celebrates gold for US women's volleyball team

Poulter, a 2014 Eaglecrest High School graduate, was a big part of the team's first Olympic volleyball gold medal. Her family let us tag along at their watch party.

AURORA, Colo. — The US women's volleyball team finally did it. 

And one of Colorado's own was a big reason why they captured the gold medal on Sunday at the Tokyo Olympics. 

Jordyn Poulter, a 2014 Eaglecrest High School graduate, will forever be part of history as she was a member of the first US women's volleyball team to take the top spot on the podium.

The Americans beat Brazil in three straight sets, 25-21, 25-20 and 25-14. 

While Jorydn was in Tokyo, she had plenty of support in Aurora, including at her parent's house on Saturday night. Bob and Rhonda Poulter hosted a watch party for the gold medal match and were kind enough to let 9NEWS attend.
