Tuesday’s Vail Valley preps wrap: Huskies, Saints and Gore Rangers volleyball
September 26, 2017
FARMER'S KORNER — Battle Mountain volleyball finished the first half of league play with a 25-14, 26-24, 25-15 win at Summit County on Tuesday, Sept. 26.
The highlight of the match was a rally from a 24-22 deficit during the second game.
The Huskies finished the first round of 4A Slope play at 3-3, reflective of some inconsistency and unforced errors.
If Tuesday was any indication, though, the second time through the league could be exciting. Coach Jason Fitzgerald said that setter Lily DeMuth set a good tempo leading the offense against the Tigers. Avery Weaver and Lillian Benway had "career nights" attacking.
Fitzgerald had also had big praise for the defense of Mason Lyon and Cassi Kelchner.
