STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — After suffering a close 3-2 loss to Vail Christian on Friday, Sept. 27, the Hayden High School volleyball team defeated Plateau Valley 3-1 the next day.

Hayden played hard against Vail Christian, winning the opening set 25-21. They fell 25-13 in the second stanza, but battled in an extra long third set that resulted in a 30-28 victory for the Tigers. The Saints forced a fifth frame with a 25-21 fourth set win. Hayden couldn’t close out the night, dropping the fifth set 15-6.

The next day, Hayden hit the road again to Plateau Valley. Despite a slow start that let the Cowboys take set one 25-18, the Tigers won the next three 25-17, 25-19, 25-12.

The Tigers are gearing up for a huge rivalry game at home on Thursday, Oct. 3, when they’ll host the Soroco Rams at 5 p.m.

While Hayden is 4-6, Soroco is 7-5. The Tigers are 1-4 against Western Slope teams, while the Rams are 3-2.

Soroco has won the last eight regular season matchups between the teams, including a 3-0 and 3-2 win last fall. The last time Hayden emerged victorious over the region rival was a playoff game in 2014, when the Tigers swept the Rams 3-0.

Soroco spent Saturday, Sept. 28 at the Simla Tournament, where they dropped all three games. The Rams lost 3-1 to Ignacio and Simla before being swept by Dayspring Christian Academy.
