Aspen volleyball falls short in regional play
The Aspen High School volleyball team saw its season come to an end Friday when it went 0-2 in regional play, hosted by Faith Christian in Arvada.
AHS, the No. 34 seed in the three-team regional, lost 3-1 to the host Eagles in the first match of the pod. Aspen won the first set 25-21 over No. 3 Faith Christian, but couldn’t keep the pace over the next three sets.
Aspen then lost 3-1 to No. 22 seed Rye to close out its season with a 13-8 record. This is the first season AHS has finished above .500 since going 12-10 in 2008.
Faith Christian beat Rye 3-0 in the nightcap to earn a trip to next week’s Class 3A state tournament. Rye finishes the season 14-11.
