Volleyball: Oh so close for Eagle Ridge's state level bid

-A A +A

BENNETT – Eagle Ridge Academy didn't qualify for the state 3A volleyball tournament Nov. 4. But it came as close as a team can.

Eagle Ridge and Bennett and Cedaredge high schools won one match in the round-robin portion of the regional tournament at Bennett High School. That forced a reseeding of the tournament based on the number of sets won during each teams' two matches. Bennett won five set. Cedaredge took four, and ERA wound up with three.

The Warriors faced off with Cedaredge in the elimination round and won 25-21. Bennett beat the Warriors 25-13 to earn the regional title and a trip to this week's state tournament at the Denver Coliseum.

Eagle Ridge finished the season with a record of 21-2.
