Paonia High School is home to the No. 1 ranked football team and volleyball team.

The Eagles went to Carbondale and had no problem with Roaring Fork on the gridiron, winning 55-7 last Friday and improving to 4-0 in nonconference play.

Senior quarterback Dagan Rienks had a monster game, completing 7 of 10 passes for 189 yards with three touchdowns. He also rushed six times for 104 yards and two more scores.

Senior Trevor Smith collected four of those passes for 122 yards and two TDs. Smith led the defense with eight tackles.

Sackett Chesnik rushed for 70 yards and two touchdowns, and senior Colby Simpson caught one pass for 34 yards and a touchdown.

Competition in the 1A Western Slope League kicks off this weekend with a pivotal matchup in Cedaredge. The Bruins, also 4-0 and ranked No. 8, will host the Eagles at 7 p.m. in a contest that will go a long way toward determining the fate of both teams.

As for action on the hardwood, Paonia lost its first volleyball match of the year on Sept. 22, falling in Grand Junction 25-20, 20-25, 12-25, 24-26.

As the scores indicate, it was a hard-fought defeat for the Eagles against a 5A team, so their status at No. 1 in 2A likely won't change.

Paonia rebounded with a 3-0 match win at Vail Mountain on Sept. 23. McKenna Hartigan had nine kills and two blocks to lead the Eagles and co-captain Emily Pieper recorded 27 assists in the win.

Sophia Anderson and Brianna Van Vleet knocked home eight kills apiece in the win, which improved Paonia to 9-1 on the season.

The Eagles were at Vail Christian last night and face last year's state qualifier Cedaredge on the road Friday night. Then Paonia hosts DeBeque on Saturday at 3 p.m.
