Roaring Fork held on to first place in the 3A Western Slope League with a 25-12, 25-20, 25-19 volleyball win at Gunnison on Saturday.

Joey Clingan distributed 18 assists and 12 digs to pace the Rams’ offense. Landon Garvik finished with 15 kills, 15 digs and six blocks, Savanna Phibbs belted three aces and Niki Burns had 11 digs.

The win pushed Roaring Fork to 9-0, both overall and in league play.

Behind 14 kills and 12 digs from Garvik, Roaring Fork took down host Coal Ridge in three games (25-13, 25-13, 25-20) on Friday.

Clingan added 23 assists and nine digs for the Rams. Burns finished up with 15 digs.

Grand Valley scored a 25-8, 28-26, 22-25, 25-22 volleyball win at Cedaredge on Friday.

The Cardinals improved to 5-4 overall and to 5-3 in the 3A WSL with the victory.

Coal Ridge defeated host Hotchkiss, 25-16, 25-19, 25-19, on Saturday.

Rifle split a softball doubleheader at Gunnison on Saturday.

Getting three goals from Alfonso Hernandez and a goal apiece from Dusty Hibdon and Cesar Ortiz, Coal Ridge’s boys soccer team topped host Rifle, 5-1, on Saturday.

Geo Munez’s go-ahead goal propelled Rifle to a 3-2 road victory over Palisade on Thursday.

The freshman’s strike squashed a Palisade comeback bid.

Behind a pair of goals from Julio Aguirre, the Bears took a 2-1 halftime lead.

But the Bulldogs bounced back.

“We ended up getting a red card, probably in the beginning of the second half,” Rifle coach Ryan Mahler said. “After that, they tied it up with about 15 minutes left. Then Geo scored a pretty good goal.”

Munez’s hard, low shot lifted the Bears to their second win of 2010.

Palisade’s goals were scored by Oscar Ponce and Spencer Jackson.

A trip to Cedaredge yielded a 20-13 defeat for Grand Valley’s football team on Friday.

The Cardinals dropped to 2-2 overall with the loss.

Friday’s Post Independent story on the Glenwood Springs-Palisade football game incorrectly stated that Austin Tribble kicked a go-ahead extra point that lifted Glenwood to a 21-20 win. J.D. Weeden actually made the kick.
