Another week of prep sports is in the book, meaning we are that much closer to regional and state competition. Local high school teams had a mixed bag of results this weekend, with a lot of it going about as expected. Let’s take a look at all the action from Oct. 8 to Oct. 10 and see what stood out.
Soroco volleyball won at home Saturday, SSHS volleyball won on the road, Hayden volleyball competed in a tournament, and SSHS cross country got a taste of the regional course.
Soroco High School football coach Dick Dudas called it the ugliest play he had ever seen. Against visiting Rangely on Friday in Oak Creek, the Rams ran what was supposed to be a sprint draw from junior quarterback Issac Jonas to senior halfback Eric Logan, but the pair just couldn’t get on the same page for the transition.
It's another busy weekend for local prep sports, with all three football teams hosting games under the Friday night lights and SSHS tennis heading to regionals.
It wasn’t the result they wanted, Soroco High School girls volleyball coach Jeannie Jo Logan said Tuesday night, but it was a good night nonetheless as her team lost a tight one on the road in North Park, falling in five sets.
Soroco High School football coach Dick Dudas pinpointed the greatest weakness the Rams have this season, and it’s their lack of strength. Which, unfortunately for them, is something they can’t do much about until the season is over.
Weird was the popular adjective used to describe the beginning of Friday’s volleyball match between Soroco High School and Hayden High School in Oak Creek.

The Hayden High School football team defeated Justice on Saturday, 36-14. Hayden volleyball won 3-1 over De Beque, and Soroco volleyball fell in three sets to West Grand on Friday.
Games this weekend offer a big opportunity for teams that have struggled so far this fall, like the Hayden football and volleyball squads, which both hit the road. Soroco, meanwhile, has a big volleyball match and some tough action for its cross country team.
Soroco volleyball also bounced back with a dominating win over De Beque on Saturday. Hayden volleyball fell at Vail Mountain. The SSHS girls cross country team took first in Gypsum.
