The schedule just entered September but we already have a second one versus two matchup in volleyball. Last month, #2 Cherokee Trail beat #1 Chaparral in 5A and tonight the focus is on the small schools as #1 Kit Carson heads to #2 La Veta. It’s a rematch of last year’s state championship contest.
Kit Carson rallied to beat La Veta in four sets to win a second consecutive 1A title. The Wildcats also trailed La Veta two sets to one but won a regular season contest in a five set thriller. Kit Carson is also coming off an exhausting five-set win at Class 2A #3 Limon on Thursday.
Tournament wise, there’s a good event in Glenwood Springs this weekend with matches beginning today. Teams involved in the action will be #1 Denver Christian (2A), #3 Mead (4A) and #5 Alamosa (3A).
