There’s no time to look back for the Bayfield High School volleyball team.
The Wolverines jump right into homecoming with the first of two homecoming matches today at the BHS gym.
Tonight’s opponent: Pagosa Springs.
Saturday’s opponent: Centauri.
The Wolverines, ranked No. 4 in Class 3A this week by The Denver Post, charge back into Intermountain League play after suffering only their second loss of the season Saturday night at Piedra Vista in Farmington.
The BHS girls (13-2) dropped a 3-0 decision (25-11, 25-22, 26-24) to the Panthers (13-1), who handed the Wolverines their other loss Sept. 11 in Bayfield.
The Wolverines, ranked No. 5 by coloradopreps.com in spite of Saturday’s loss, will try to protect their Intermountain League winning streak alive. They haven’t lost in the IML this season (4-0) – or the previous four seasons.
They will host rival Pagosa Springs tonight with the varsity match set to start about 6:30 p.m.
The Pirates (8-8 overall, 1-3 in the IML) are coming off a split last weekend. They beat Center 3-1 in a nonconference match before falling to Alamosa 3-2 in an IML contest.
Pagosa Springs beat Monte Vista 3-0 for its conference win.
On Saturday, the homecoming focus will turn to Centauri.
The Falcons (5-7 overall, 1-2 in the IML) will visit the BHS gym for a Saturday afternoon match (3 p.m.).
Centauri is coming off a 3-2 loss to Alamosa.
Unbeaten Valley (18-0) remains the No. 1 team in 3A volleyball this week.
