Not so long ago, Hotchkiss was doing well to send just one player into the finals at the annual Delta County Invitational tennis tournament. But last Saturday morning the Bulldogs sent players into five of the seven championship matches, claiming three victories and ending the tournament with 53 points and the team title.
It was promoted as a rematch of the 2013 state championship game — the visiting Paonia Eagles, defending their title against Centauri, the state runners-up and the team that gave Paonia its sole loss in its 2013 12-1 season.
But on the opening play, senior Josh Kimball broke through the Falcon line and tackled star running back Jared Aziz for a 5-yard loss.
The Cedaredge Lady Bruins defeated the visiting Hotchkiss Bulldogs on Sept. 11 by a 3-0 score. With the win, Cedaredge upped its record to 3-0 in league action and 7-0 overall.
The Lady Eagles volleyball team went undefeated for the second straight week, winning nine of nine sets to end the week at 6-0 overall.
All three of the wins were against Cowboys.
Cedaredge High School’s football team won its third overall game with a 14-12 decision over the Skiers in Aspen last Friday night.
The passing game for the Bruins was virtually non-existent as Jacob Ostrom had four passes and completed one for a 6-yard completion to Tylor Beach.
