Hayden volleyball splits with Vail schools

Joel Reichenberger

— It was an up-and-down day for the Hayden High School volleyball squad, but combined with a Thursday night win, it still has the Tigers on a high.

Hayden beat Vail Mountain in three sets Saturday, 25-14, 25-15 and 25-22, then lost to Vail Christian in three. 26-24, 25-17 and 25-17.

The results moved the team to 2-4 on the season.

“Against Vail Mountain, the girls started really well,” Hayden coach Dayna Hunter said. “Usually, it takes us a few sets to get going, but they were good right from the first game. That’s what I’ve been hoping for.”

The team gave Vail Christian one great set, but couldn’t take that one or follow up in the next two.

That didn’t deflate the weekend, however.

“I still have high hopes for this team. They’re doing great,” Hunter said. “We’re making good progress. I feel really positive about this season and the direction it’s going.”
