VMS volleyball wins 10th straight
VMS is sitting with a 10-0 record after bouncing Debeque 15-10, 15-3 on Tuesday. The win also raised the Gore Rangers, ranked No. 2 in Class 1A by the Rocky Mountain News, to 4-0 in the Mountain League.
“It was pretty intense,” VMS coach Mike Garvey said. “Tiffany Allan had a bit of a shoulder injury and had a rough start. But I was really pleased with how she and everyone stayed patient. It was good to see us overcome a little adversity.”
VMS did that with the usual suspects like Lara “Tree” Bossow, Maggie Haslee and Aubrie Apple, but there were some other unsung heroes.
“Julie Littman came off the bench and provided a spark,” Garvey said. “She got a couple of kills of the bench and that was great to see. That was what pushed us over the top.
“Lindsay Wright had a great game. She had some great passing and good blocking and she served well in both games. She was in on her share.”

For the statistically inclined, Tree led VMS with seven kills, followed by Haslee with four. Tree and Wright led the team in digs and blocks, while Allan finished with four aces.
VMS returns home tonight for a 6 p.m. game against Vail Christian.
“We enjoy playing them,” Garvey said. “I respect Cathy Alexander as a coach and I know she’ll always have her team well-prepared. It’s a fun game for us.”
