Roaring Fork polished off a perfect 3A Western Slope League volleyball season with a 25-9, 25-9, 25-14 win on Friday.

Landon Garvik pounded nine kills to lead the Rams, who head into the playoffs with an 18-1 overall record and 18-0 league mark. Megan Gianinetti finished with seven kills and Ixchel Muniz led the Rams with eight digs.

As league champion, Roaring Fork will host the 3A District 6 tournament next Saturday.

Coal Ridge held off a feisty Aspen squad en route to a 29-27, 27-25, 23-25, 28-26 win on Friday.

Christa Currier belted 13 kills to lead the Titans. Jessica West finished with 10 kills and Chasity Gonzales had 22 assists.

The win gave the Titans’ a 10-9 overall record to close out the regular season.

At 10-8 in the 3A WSL, Coal Ridge locked up fourth place and will play in the 3A District 6 tournament at Roaring Fork next Saturday.

Grand Valley split a pair of weekend matches, beating Hotchkiss on Saturday (21-25, 25-23, 26-28, 25-13, 15-8) and losing to Olathe on Friday (25-17, 25-21, 21-25, 25-22).

The season’s likely over for the Cardinals, who dropped to 7-11 overall and to 7-10 in the 3A WSL.

According to the Colorado High School Activities Association’s 2010 volleyball bulletin, Grand Valley is technically eligible for a district tournament spot as the league’s sixth-place team but is not an automatic qualifier. The top five teams in the 3A WSL receive automatic district berths.

Rifle closed out its regular season with a 25-14, 25-12, 25-14 loss at Gunnison on Saturday.

The Bears ended their fall with a 1-18 record.
