Rams volleyball earns sweep over Gunnison

CARBONDALE – After a disappointing match last week at rival Basalt’s homecoming, the Roaring Fork Rams got their game back in sync for their own homecoming Friday night.

Sarah Armstrong had six kills and three blocks and Tarn Udall added four kills and three blocks as the Rams rolled to a 25-21, 25-16, 15-16 sweep of Gunnison Class 3A Western Slope League volleyball.

“We practiced really hard this week due to the loss, and really stepped it up a lot,” Armstrong said. “We had it together this game. We said before the game that every time the ball hit the ground we would hit the ground, even if we didn’t think we could get it.”

With the win, Roaring Fork improves to 3-2 in league (7-3 overall). Gunnison drops to 2-3 (5-4).

The first game was a see-saw affair, before the Rams pulled away for the win.

Gunnison got off to a quick start in the second game, leading 5-1, but Roaring Fork fought back to even the score at 6-6. After more back-and-forth action, the Rams went on a 9-1 run to put the margin at 16-10. The Cowboys wouldn’t draw closer than four for the remainder of the game.

Roaring Fork never trailed in the third game.

Roaring Fork’s next game is Saturday at Aspen.
