Bruins winners in one of three VB matches

By Wayne Crick

Cedaredge won its first volleyball match of the week but fell to both Ridgway and Rangely over the weekend.

The Bruins' win was against Olathe's Bruins on Oct. 6 and took just three straight sets, 25-10, 25-17 and 25-8.

Olathe's Susan Suarez had 22 digs and Olevia Pacheco had 19 in the loss.

Friday night's match against Ridgway's Demons was against the 2A District 3 leaders. The Demons were winners in three sets with set scores of 25-16, 26-24 and 25-19.

The Bruins showed signs of solid play with their close scores in both the second and third sets in the match but couldn't get over the hump.

Saren Robinson led the Demons with six kills while Emersyn Gentry, Hunter Gentry and Emma Copp posted five kills each.

The Bruins' final match of the week showed a highly concentrated effort with Rangely playing just well enough to get by the Bruins 25-22, 25-17 and 27-25.

Lindzey Thacker and Katelyn Brown shared honors in the kills' department with seven each.

Thacker also had 11 blocks to lead the team in that category and Sarah Conner was close behind with nine blocks.

Cedaredge was in Gunnison on Tuesday and will host Delta on Thursday, Oct. 13, at 6 p.m. for varsity play. Nucla's Mustangs are in town on Friday for a 4 p.m. contest and then it's back on the road to Aspen for a Saturday contest with the Skiers.
