By Aaron Braun, Reporter

As the Girl’s volleyball regular season ends, the post season is just beginning. Rangeview’s girls volleyball team ended their regular season with an overall record of 17-6 and a league record of 8-1.

After defeating the 14-0 Prairie View Thunderhawks, who were second in the league, the ladies of Rangeview quickly took their spot at second. After the league leaders, Brighton High School lost to third place Prairie View, Rangeveiw became the league champions.

This is the first time since 2012 that Rangeview has won league in volleyball. Throughout the season the Raiders had many miraculous victories, many of them ending in three sets. Rangeveiw had swept 13 teams this season, and only a handful of games lasted more than three sets.

“We are very capable of pulling one of the biggest upsets ever.” Senior Kelsie Hurtado says confidently about their upcoming game.  

Their keys to success are very simple, senior Quina Hughes says, “ Keeping the focus, communication, having fun, and playing their game,” will help win them the game. She also adds, “I’m pretty confident,” she said about facing the number one seed Chatfield, “We kept up with Arapahoe, who beat Chatfield.”
