The VMS Women’s Tennis Team is a regional champ for the first time in school history! The team won the Class 3A Region 8 Tournament in Grand Junction on Thursday. VMS has qualified individuals or doubles’ teams in the past, but our Gore Rangers are sending a contingent to state in Colorado Springs starting on Thursday.
“In past years, we’ve had one or two qualify, sometimes zero,” VMS coach Hillary McSpadden said. “We basically have 10 or so players going, so this is pretty big for us.”
Each team has three matches of singles and four of doubles. Whoever wins the majority of the seven contests wins the team competition. Six of VMS’s seven entrants either won the regional title or finished second to qualify for state. Ava Cavatalo is a regional champion at No. 2 singles, Gracie Allen (Vail Christian) and Sofia Brunner rolled in at No. 2 doubles to win. Congratulations VMS Tennis!!
