Basalt volleyball beats Cedaredge

Aspen Times Staff Report

In another five-game thriller, this time after dropping the first two games, the Basalt High volleyball team rallied to beat Cedaredge Friday night at the BHS Bighouse.

With the 22-25, 20-25, 25-16, 25-18, 15-10 win, Basalt remained in a three-way tie for first place in the Class 3A Western Slope League standings at 5-1 in league play, 11-4 overall.

Tonight, the Lady Longhorns go on the road to face Roaring Fork in Carbondale at 5:30 p.m. It’s Basalt’s second to last regular season opponent prior to the Oct. 24-25 3A Western Slope League district tournament, which serves as the first step of the postseason and a qualifier for the 3A state tourney.

“Cedaredge is a great team; they’re right up,” Basalt coach Billy Miller said of Friday’s match. “They dug almost everything we hit at them – they’ve got a really good defense.

“But in the first two games we lost, we missed six serves in each game, which is a lot in rally scoring. It was kind of like last week against Hotchkiss. But after we tightened it up and stopped giving away points, we came around.”

Senior Lauren Redfern recorded 13 kills and 14 blocks for the Longhorns. Senior Robin Child had four kills and 12 blocks.

Basalt wraps up its regular season schedule on Friday, Oct. 17, at Olathe.
