Roaring Fork spikers upset by Meeker

MEEKER – The Roaring Fork volleyball team got a surprise from Class 2A Meeker Thursday night. Meeker jumped out to a two-game advantage and the hole was too deep for the Class 3A Rams as Meeker held on for a 3-2 (25-13, 25-16, 24-26, 20-25, 15-11) victory.”Meeker is pretty darn tough and really scrappy,” Roaring Fork coach Karen Crownhart said. “I think the girls just figured they were 2A and underestimated them, then we got into it and got shocked.”Roaring Fork did rally to tie the match at two games, but the comeback stalled in the deciding game. Sarah Armstrong led the Rams (2-3) with 15 kills and Kali Chestnut had a solid night serving with four aces in the losing effort.”It was definitely a wake-up call,” Crownhart said. “We have to fight for every game from the beginning.”Glenwood golf team third at Craig InvitationalCRAIG – The Glenwood Springs boys golf team posted a third-place finish Thursday at the Craig Invitational held at the Yampah Valley Golf Course.Michael Flohr led a group of players to shoot better than 83, carding a team-low 80 on the par-72 course.
