Paonia ends VMS’ season
PARACHUTE — Timing is everything in life, and Vail Mountain School volleyball learned that lesson the hard way.
The Gore Rangers beat Paonia to finish the regular season on Saturday, Oct. 21. That qualified VMS for Pool C of the 2A District 5 Tournament this weekend.
The Gore Rangers knocked off Plateau Valley, 25-20, 25-15, 25-19, but lost to Paonia, 26-24, 25-22, 25-23. The loss to Paonia this weekend knocked VMS out of the tournament in disappointing fashion.
VMS, nonetheless, had a great season with a 15-6 record.
