Vail Valley preps: Devils, Gore Rangers, Huskies and Saints pick up postseason honors

And everyone thought phone books were dead.

When it comes to fall sports, Eagle County's fall postseason honorees outdid themselves.

All-state in cross country is what we call a local jog between Battle Mountain and Eagle Valley with five Huskies or Devils among the top-10 4A runners in the state.

Conference Player of the Year awards? Congratulations to Battle Mountain's Dani Barajas (soccer) and Vail Mountain's Sarah Evans (volleyball).

Evans as well as Battle Mountain's Lillian Benway were also selected to play in all-state games as capstones to their volleyball careers.

The following are the postseason awards, as reported by local coaches.
