West Grand takes out Hayden in 3 sets
Steamboat Springs — The Hayden High School volleyball team gave West Grand all it wanted in two sets, but couldn’t keep it going in the third, and in the end the Mustangs came away with a three-set sweep on Saturday in Kremmling.
West Grand beat Hayden, 25-22, 25-22 and 25-12.
“They just fought so stinking hard,” Hayden coach Dayna Hunter said. “I don’t know if it was frustration or what, but we just couldn’t keep ahold of it in that third one.”
Hunter said her team was playing very well early. It traded points with West Grand in the first set, then pulled ahead for a bit in the second.
“They just get in this groove,” she said. “Everyone does their part. They play and they’re in the groove. I don’t know how else to explain it.”
Hayden will look to get in that groove again Saturday. The team dropped to 4-11 with the loss and returns to the court at 1 p.m. Saturday on the road against North Park, the Tigers’ opponents for two of its final three matches. It plays North Park again, at home this time, Oct. 17, then closes the season Oct. 18 on the road against De Beque.
