Girls volleyball: Coal Ridge 3, Basalt 0

The Coal Ridge Lady Titans beat Basalt 3-0 at home Tuesday for a key 3A Western Slope League win. Game scores were 25-21, 25-23, 25-18.

Coal Ridge was led by Lydia Dye with seven kills and five blocks; Mikayla Cheney with five kills; Peyton Garrison with seven kills and 15 digs; Emma Morgan with 26 assists, three aces and two blocks; Justice Segovia with 23 digs and two aces; and Bayley Jacobson with 16 digs and two aces.

“It was great to get a win and play after a 10-day break,” coach Aimee Gerber said of the Titans, who were out of action for much of the last two weeks due to COVID-19 protocols. “They fought well together and worked hard with only one day of practice.”

The Titans (4-5 overall and 2-1 in 3A league) host new league foe North Fork (6-5, 2-1) for Thursday’s homecoming match. Varsity game time is 6:30 p.m.

Also playing their homecoming match Thursday will be the 7-1 Coal Ridge boys soccer team, versus 7-1 Roaring Fork in a game with major 3A WSL implications. Game time there is 4 p.m.
