October is national Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Each year the Colorado High School Activities Association's "Think Pink" campaign, held in conjunction with the American Cancer Society, urges teams to promote awareness of breast cancer during October.
Of all the fall sports, tennis season is the shortest. Regional 8 4A action begins this Friday morning at Canyon View Park in Grand Junction.
In Colorado prep tennis, schools compete either in Class 4A or 5A, based on the number of students.
In volleyball, it was an up day for Hotchkiss and a down day for Cedaredge, as the Lady Bulldogs defeated the visiting Lady Bruins in straight sets (25-19, 25-10, 25-16) last Tuesday.
Jordan Smith led Cedaredge in kills with five, with Rachel Latta and Summer Herman contributing three each.
It was billed as a potentially big game in the 1A WSL. Hotchkiss, rated fourth in state rankings a week ago, was unable to keep up with Cedaredge's pace late in the game and found themselves in a position they have not been in very often.
