GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – Coach Sean Lively has said all season long that, with time and more experience, his Glenwood Springs volleyball team would come around.In Saturday afternoon’s three-game sweep of visiting Moffat County, his Demons took another step in that direction.Behind 11 kills from Kelly Lawson, six kills from Kenzi Caple and 18 team aces – including eight by Lawson – from the service line, Glenwood rolled to a 25-15, 25-18, 25-19 win over the visiting Bulldogs.”We played outstanding,” lauded Lively, whose team is now 2-1 in the 4A Western Slope League and 3-5 overall. “We’ve worked really hard on our teamwork and playing point by point. Even in the third game when we were down 6-0, we kept our composure. That’s what we’ve been looking for. We’re starting to show up and play.”Moffat County, on the other hand, is still finding its way. The Bulldogs returned just one player with substantial varsity experience to this season’s roster after losing seven seniors to graduation.”Some days are good and some days are not as good,” Moffat County coach Brianna Montgomery said. “Today was one of our weaker days. I guess you just have that with inexperience.”Lauren Roberts’ four kills led the Bulldogs on Saturday. Ariel Sanchez added three kills along with a team-high 15 digs. Alisha Camp finished with five blocks and Tasha Romney had three for Moffat County, now 2-4 overall and 1-1 in the 4A WSL.Next up for the Bulldogs is a Thursday trip to Steamboat Springs. Glenwood hosts Palisade the same day in another match and another opportunity for the Demons to improve.”We’re coming together,” Lively said. “I still don’t think we’re ready yet. We still have a ways to go, but I still believe we’ll be one of the teams competing at the end of the season.”
