Rams complete league slate perfect

Post Independent Writer

Now that the Roaring Fork volleyball team has completed the regular season with a perfect league record, the Rams can set their sights on the postseason.Roaring Fork won a pair of road matches Friday and Saturday with a 3-1 victory over Cedaredge and a 3-2 (game scores not available) thriller over Basalt to wrap up the regular season with a 12-0 record in the 3A Western Slope League (13-3 overall).”We knew earlier this week that we had the league title and an automatic seed into regionals, but we wanted to keep a good record so we could get a home seed for regionals,” head coach Karen Crownhart said. Roaring Fork will have the No. 1 seed headed into next weekend’s district tournament in Grand Junction. The league-champion Rams automatically move on to regionals regardless of how they finish in the district tournament, but a few more wins would certainly help convince the seeding committee to give Roaring Fork home-court advantage.”We have to go into districts and beat everybody a third time, which is really hard to do,” Crownhart said. “We’re going to have to be on the top of our game to take districts.”Basalt ends the regular season in fourth place in league and also advances to the district tournament.• In Class 4A action, Glenwood Springs downed Eagle Valley 3-1 (23-25, 25-22, 25-20, 25-19) to finish the season with a 10-4 Western Slope League record (14-4 overall).
