Volleyball teams compete in Santa Fe Tournament

All three Valencia County volleyball teams spent last weekend competing at the Santa Fe Tournament of Champions, hosted by Santa Fe High School.

Belen played two games in Santa Fe, losing both. The Eagles, who opened their season last Tuesday with a loss to Espanola Valley at home, fell in straight sets, 25-15, 25-20, 25-21 to St. Michael’s in their first match of the tournament.

Belen was then unable to overcome district foe Grants in the second and final game of the tournament, falling 3-1 (25-19, 25-17, 23-25, 25-12) to the Pirates.

The loss dropped the Eagles to 0-3 on the season as the team remains in search of its first win under new coach Victoria Spragg.

BHS was scheduled to take on Taos on Tuesday, but the Tigers canceled the matchup after being unable to find transportation.

The Eagles will return to the court on Saturday, Sept. 18, at 12:30 p.m. when the team hosts Rio Grande.

It will be Belen’s final home game before district play starts on Tuesday, Oct. 5,
