Demons still hoping to net wins

There’s plenty of life left in the Demons after the first day of the 4A girls tennis Western Slope Regional tournament, which started Thursday in Delta.All three Glenwood singles players are still alive for a state berth, with two playing for the regional title Friday, and a doubles squad also could still extend its season.Glenwood’s No. 2 and No. 3 singles players are both went 2-0 and are playing in the title match Friday against Steamboat Springs.Roni St. Pierre faces Breanne Murray in the No. 2 game Friday. Murray downed St. Pierre 6-3, 6-4 in a dual match Monday in Glenwood. Caitlyn Fowler is also matched up against a Steamboat player in the championship match, taking on Lisa Floyd, who got the better of Fowler, 6-0, 6-0 Monday.The top two players or doubles teams advance to next week’s 4A state tournament, but the loser of the championship game isn’t guaranteed a spot. Third-place finishers can get a state berth with a playback against the second-place finisher.And the playback is the route Glenwood No. 1 singles player Jackie Weast and the No. 3 doubles tandem of Stacey Miller and Tamara Flanery hope to use to gain a state spot.Weast went 3-1 on the opening day, and plays for third place and a possible playback opportunity Friday.Miller and Flanery were 1-1 and are in the same position as Weast today.Three Demons doubles teams got knocked out in the first day. The No. 1 team of Cheree Carver and Kari Nesbit went 0-2, while No. 2 and No. 4 teams of Maggie Tolan and Cassie Croissant, and Megan McGavock and Charlie Echeverria, both went 1-2 and lost in their playback match.Information on Roaring Fork players was not available at press time.
