Glenwood, Roaring Fork volleyball teams open revamped season with wins

Coal Ridge boys soccer wins opener

Area high school volleyball teams are finally back in action starting this week in the state’s realigned Season C, and Glenwood Springs and Roaring Fork high school girls made the most of things.

Also making their season debuts are two other traditional fall team sports, football and boys soccer, with games on the schedule Thursday, Friday and Saturday from Carbondale to Parachute.

In volleyball action Tuesday evening, Glenwood downed the visiting Basalt Longhorns 3-0 (25-11, 25-17, 25-23) to open the 2021 season.

The Demons had 25 kills on the night, including seven from junior Charlotte Olszewski on 17 attempts, and four each from sophomore Mattea Enewold and junior Miah Suarez, each with seven kill attempts.

Basalt seniors Riley Dolan and Karina Bauer had five kills each for the Longhorns.

The Roaring Fork Rams of Carbondale also took care of business at home Tuesday against Grand Junction High School, winning 3-0 (25-16, 25-19, 25-21).

The Grand Valley Lady Cardinals were also in action on the first official day of the season, falling at Grand Junction Central (18-25, 14-25, 25-20, 23-25).

Individual and teams stats were not immediately reported to for the Roaring Fork and Grand Valley games.

On Wednesday, the Coal Ridge volleyball team dropped its opener at Palisade, 3-1 (20-25, 25-15, 16-25, 22-25).

Glenwood Springs hosts Coal Ridge at 6:30 p.m. Friday, just prior to the Demons’ season opener on the football field between Glenwood Springs and Aspen at 7 p.m.

Soccer: Coal Ridge 2, Vail Mountain 1

The Coal Ridge High School boys soccer teams started off the delayed season Tuesday night with a non-conference win over Vail Mountain, 2-1. The Titans travel to face Aspen Thursday evening, and have their home opener at 11 a.m. Saturday versus Fruita Monument.
