Lutheran's Connie Olson registers one of her 41 kills as the two-time defending state champions won four matches at the Glenwood Springs Tournament last Saturday. This week the schedule gets more difficult for the Lions and conference play begins for other top ten squads.

With only two weeks of regular season action remaining, the focus shifts toward the postseason and the district tournaments. Only two districts are comprised by single leagues, with the YWKC making up district 5, and the Southern Peaks becoming district 6.
With only two ranked teams suffering losses last week, there was very little movement in this week's poll. The top five teams remained the same, and no new teams made the field. Several big games are on the slate for this week, many that have league race implications.
There was quite a bit of shuffling in the polls this week, opening the door for two new faces. As Briggsdale and Heritage Christian fell from the rankings, Fleming and La Veta ascended. A loss by Sangre de Cristo also created some movement in the top half of the poll, allowing Norwood to climb two s
