Lady Demons Take District Championship in Four over Lady Red Devils

By Marty Mayfield

KRTN Multi-Media

As a district championship match should be it was a close one as the Lady Demons of Des Moines and the Lady Red Devils of Springer met in Des Moines Saturday evening to determine who would own the District 1A championship title for the 2017 volleyball season.

Des Moines came into the title match 18-2 overall with a district record of 7-0. Springer’s record overall was 11-11 with a district record of 5-3.

In game one it was close until something happened after a tie at five. Des Moines quickly made the plays that scored the points. Before long Des Moines was up 12-6. Des Moines continued their domination as McKenna Hittson went to the net for the kill or the block. At the net she often met Springer’s Katy Scott. The two would battle at the net several times during the championship match. Des Moines soon widened the score spread 20-11.  At the end of the game Des Moines put on in the win column with a 25-15 score.

Game two started out close as well. Katy Scott was at the net for the block often for Springer to keep this game even closer than game one while the other Lady Red Devils like Alicia Arias kept the ball in play. 15-15 was the score midway through before Des Moines managed to make the plays work and pull out to a 25-20 win.

Game three saw the Lady Red Devils take control and while the Lady Demons made the kills it would be a Lady Red Devil win as the girls played the ball well making long volleys and working for the point. At the end of the game it was a Red Devil win 25-17.

In game four the Lady Demons found the groove they lost in game three and pulled out in front quickly. The Lady Red Devils played the ball to keep the score close until midway through the game when Des Moines widened the point spread going up 20-14. Des Moines went on to win the game and match to take the district title.

Both teams can now look forward to the state tourney to be held in Rio Rancho beginning Thursday with pool play.

Lady Wildcats Take Home the District Title

By Marty Mayfield

KRTN Multi-Media

The District 3AAA Volleyball Tournament Championship match on November 3rd was the fourth time the Raton Lady Tigers and the Desert Academy Lady Wildcats met this season.  Earlier, Raton beat Desert Academy on October 30th in a tie breaker for the regular season district title giving Raton the right to host the Championship game

The Raton girls came into the match with a 6-1 district record while Desert Academy had a 5-2 district record. With the win from Monday fresh in their minds, the Lady Tigers came out strong and quickly gained a 10-point lead before the bottom fell out of the game. The blocks began to fall on the wrong side of the net and as Coach Tina Dorrance noted Raton had a few errors that cost them. By the time game one came to an end, Desert Academy had not only come from behind but won the game in overtime 26-24.

Game two saw the Lady Wildcats pull out early and gain a six point lead. The Lady Tigers late in the game battled back and came to within one but simply couldn’t make things gel and push it over. Game two ended with another Lady Wildcat win 25-21.

Game three took a turn for the Lady Tigers with blocks by Autumn Archuleta, Camryn Mileta, Halle Medina and Kerrigan Weese, making it over the net to the Wildcat side. The spikes by hitters Archuleta,  Mileta, Camryn Stoecker and Jadyn Walton were finding the holes in the Lady Wildcat defense. The game stayed close with tie scores at 12, 14, 15 and finally 19 before Raton fought to pickup the win 25-22.

Game four followed the same pattern as game two with the Lady Tigers falling behind but staying in the battle. Down by as many as eight points at 18-10. The Lady Tigers found a groove and started scoring but lost the game at 25-22.

The Lady Tigers struggled against Desert Academy at home loosing both matches, but bested Desert Academy on their home court to win on the road as they bested Desert Academy.  Coach Tina Dorrance noted it wasn’t the way we wanted, but the girls will go on to state and they can look forward to that.

Pool play will begin on Thursday November 9, 2017 setting the final bracket for the state tourney.
