For the Craig Middle School volleyball program, it would appear seven is indeed the luckiest number. The seventh-grade A-team won Saturday’s district tournament hosted by CMS, coming out on top against visiting teams from Rangely, Meeker and Steamboat Springs. Playing in a double elimination format, the Bulldogs won all three brackets of the day, beating Rangely 2-0 in the first round before moving on to a 2-1 victory against Meeker in the second.
