Demons volleyball team advances to regionals

Glenwood Springs lost twice to Delta’s volleyball team in the regular season. The third time proved to be a charm for the Demons on Saturday.

Needing a win to ensure a regional berth, Glenwood came through with a five-game win over the Panthers in the Class 4A District 7 tournament’s semifinals.

The Demons, who went 2-2 on the afternoon, went on to lose to Palisade in five games in the district final, which was played for the purpose of regional seeding. The top two teams in district tournaments advance to regionals.

Glenwood lost twice to Palisade on Saturday, dropping a pool play match to the Bulldogs earlier in the day. The Demons defeated Summit in their other pool play match.

Glenwood enters next weekend’s regionals with a 12-11 overall record.

Regional pairings will be released by the Colorado High School Activities Association today.

Roaring Fork kept its volleyball season alive with a second-place finish at Saturday’s Class 3A District 5 tournament at Colorado Springs Christian.

The Rams defeated Trinidad in four games and Brush in five before a three-game loss to the host squad to wrap a long day of volleyball.

“I was pleased with how we played as a team overall,” Roaring Fork coach Carrie Shultz said. “We went into practice this week really focused. The girls were very engaged. It showed in our play.”

On deck for the Rams, now 17-5 overall, is a regional tournament next weekend.

Coal Ridge’s volleyball season came to an end with a trio of losses at Saturday’s 3A District 6 tournament in Olathe.

The Titans lost in three games to both The Classical Academy and Olathe and were downed by Manitou Springs in four matches.

Coal Ridge wrapped its season with a 14-8 overall record.
