Two Titans invited to CHSCA all-state game

PEACH VALLEY, Colorado ” Coming off the best season in school history, the Coal Ridge Titans volleyball team will send their head coach and libero to the all-state volleyball matches in Greeley on June 12 and 13.

Head coach Denise Greene and senior libero Kelly Romero were selected by the Colorado High School Coaches Association to participate.

The Titans are coming off a 20-5 overall record and went undefeated through the 3A Western Slope League at 16-0. They went 1-2 at regionals with losses to Eaton and Colorado Springs Christian and a win over Monte Vista.

Romero made the all-conference team the last four years, and Greene said that’s due to her hard-work and dedication.

“She plays three different sports (volleyball, basketball and soccer) and she works really hard,” Greene said. “When volleyball is in season, her heart’s into it 100 percent. Out of season, she’s working just as hard.”

The Titans success came to be because “they worked together as a team and let go of all the individual things that could come up,” Greene said.

She has coached the Titans for the last four years, since the program started.

State-wide, around 90 girls from 1A through 5A are selected to play in the All-State Volleyball Games, so it’s no easy task to make the team.

“I love what I do, and I hope others see that,” Greene said. “To be recognized by our peers, that’s a great accomplishment.”
