Late preps: VMS sweeps Soroco
September 8, 2012
EAST VAIL – Burn, baby, burn, disco inferno.
Vail Mountain School volleyball got its groove on on Disco Night, knocking off Soroco in three games, 25-8, 25-12, 25-10, in its season opener Friday night in East Vail.
Not only was it the season opener, and a good one, but it also marked the return of senior Lizzie Bolyard, who missed all of her junior year with ACL and MCL tears in a preseason scrimage last summer.
“It’s great to have her back,” VMS coach Mike Garvey said. “We didn’t lose anyone (to graduation) last year, so everyone’s back and it feels like we added a player.”
Garvey said the Gore Rangers were very crisp in dispatching Soroco. The Cardinals had only two three-point rallies. VMS played 10 players without a hitch on the court.
VMS heads to Edwards Tuesday to face Battle Mountain in the first of several Eagle County matchups this season for the Gore Rangers.

“This year, we get to play Battle Mountain twice, Vail Christian twice and we see Summit and Eagle Valley at the Summit tournament at the end of the season,” Garvey said. “The girls play together with each other in club, so it’s a great experience to play against each other. It really says a lot about the coaching in this valley that we’re playing some in-town rivalries.”
