Host Farmers defeat Center in league face-off

MONTE VISTA— On a night that the Farmers were clad in pink for breast cancer awareness they knocked off Center 3 sets to none.
In remembrance of Stephanie L. Miner a former teacher who passed away Oct. 23 2003, Sargent donned pink uniforms. The Farmers also pledged to their Kills for a Cure, the proceeds benefitting the Stephanie L. Miner Imaging Center at the San Luis Valley Health Center in Alamosa. This is also a special cause to the Center Vikings as their head coach Madison Miner is Stephanie’s daughter.
The first set was all Sargent, the Farmers closed it out quickly by a score of 25-8, then Center woke up.  
The second set went back and forth with the two teams trading leads. After the two teams tied at 18 it was a fresh match and a race to the game point. Center failed to do anything with their three serves while Sargent collected the final seven points to finalize set two at 25-21. The Farmers closed things out in the third set getting up 24-13 collecting the game point on a side-out to win the game in three sets.
The win puts Sargent at 9-0 and keeps them firmly atop the District 1 Volleyball league.  Sargent will try to stay perfect in league play when they play host to South Park next Saturday 6p.m. Center will finalize their road trip with a game at Cripple Creek when they take on the Pioneers this Saturday at noon.
