Hayden volleyball splits with Vail schools
Steamboat Springs — 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.”
Colorado treats marijuana taxes like ‘a piggy bank,’ but top lawmakers want to limit spending to two areas
The complaints from constituents and policy advocates are aimed at the Marijuana Tax Cash Fund, a depository for about half of the $272 million the state is expected to generate this fiscal year from marijuana-related taxes. The legislature has guidelines for how the money should be spent, but lawmakers can use it for just about anything they want. And in practice, they do, splitting the money among dozens of different programs, across more than a dozen state agencies.
