GALLERY: Moffat County High School, Craig Middle School volleyball
The past week has seen a variety of volleyball in the Moffat County High School gym, as MCHS and Craig Middle School teams have hosted multiple games.
MCHS varsity fell in both its home games, including a Sept. 26 non-conference match against Rifle, going 3-0 against the Bears — 25-16, 25-17 and 25-17. A Thursday game in Parachute with Grand Valley was also tough, as the Cardinals also gained the sweep at 25-15, 25-19 and 25-15. A Saturday match against Olathe proved agonizingly closer, as the Lady Bulldogs came back from losses of 25-19 and 25-18 for an extended final set against the Pirates that the visiting squad ultimately closed out 26-24.
CMS teams hosted their final home event of the season in the Dog House Thursday, bringing in Hayden. While seventh-grade C-Team took a 2-1 defeat, both the seventh- and eighth-grade A-Teams were able to push past the Tigers in three sets — 25-14, 21-25 and 15-12 and 28-26, 23-25 and 15-11, respectively.
MCHS hosts Aspen on Tuesday as part of Homecoming week, while CMS volleyball will close out its season with the Oct. 7 district tournament in Rangely.
When in doubt, stick to the animal kingdom, blockbuster movies and children’s literature. The winners of the 20th annual Whittle the Wood Rendezvous were named Saturday evening to conclude the yearly festival that sees tree stumps become works of art in a matter of four days.
