Demons rout Huskies

Phil Sandoval

A team meeting among the Glenwood Springs girls volleyball team prior to Thursday’s match with Battle Mountain set the tone for the rest of the season.

“We agreed that we didn’t have enough intensity,” said senior Tessie Tracy of the subject that came out of that meeting.

“Steamboat is our main rival,” said Tracy. “So now, we think every game is versus Steamboat.”

And after Glenwood finished their 3-0 rout on the visiting Huskies, Battle Mountain did sport a bit of Sailor red.

But it wasn’t from their uniforms – it was from the welts the Demon hitters raised on various body parts on Battle Mountain’s players.

In the 50 minutes it took to play the match, the Huskies eyes were fixed on the hovering figures of Amber Sutherland, Leah Hinkey and Leanna Lawson.

The three front-row players accounted for 17 kills between them as Battle Mountain struggled to find a way to defend the laser beams the Demon hitters were blasting away at them.

The first two games finished in a heartbeat. Glenwood held Battle Mountain to solo digits on wins of 25-7 and 25-6 before toying the the Huskies in game three.

After falling behind early, the Demons went up to win 25-17.
