Battle Mountain, Vail Mountain volleyball impress at Queen of the Mountain tournament
September 29, 2018
EDWARDS — Alamosa is your Queen of the Mountain for 2018.
The Mean Moose — one of the greatest mascots in the state of Colorado — edged host Battle Mountain in four sets, 25-19, 23-25, 27-25, 25-17, on Saturday, Sept. 29. Class 3A Alamosa is 18-0 and ranked No. 3 in the state in that classification's rating-percentage index.
The host Huskies finished second at their home tournament and ran their record to 10-3.
'We needed to compete'
"We felt like we needed to compete at the halfway point of our season and see new looks," Huskies coach Jason Fitzgerald said. "Playing best-of-5 matches gave teams a chance to come back and have a really competitive tournament, and it was another great opportunity to be ambassadors of volleyball in our part of the state."
Vail Mountain School (11-3) had a great weekend. After losing their opener to the Huskies, the Gore Rangers beat Northfield, Summit County and toppled Durango in five sets for third place.
