After two rigorous days of battling their way on the court, the Glenwood Springs Demons volleyball team still fell short.

On Friday, September 6th through Saturday, September 7th, Glenwood Springs High School held The Demon Invitational, a volleyball tournament welcoming other highschool teams to come play the Demons.

The tournament kicked off with the Northbridge Grizzlies, who won 2-0. Later that evening, the Demons beat the Pagosa Springs Pirates 2-0.

Despite the momentum they’d gained from their win the first day, the second day proved to be more difficult. GSHS played the Mead Mavericks of Longmont and lost 2-0, and that same afternoon they played the Alamosa Mean Moose and lost 2-0.

“The great thing about those losses is that it reveals how resilient the team is, and how much the team cares about each other,” Coach Devon Bernhagen stated.

Bernhagen has only been coaching for one year and she already thinks the team has great chemistry.

“The team meshes really well, I think the biggest indicator of success in the team is how well the team works together and how much chemistry they have,” Bernhagen added.

We asked coach Burnhagen how she thinks this season will go and how our losses that weekend affected the team.

“It challenged us and it kinda put us in this place of ‘Who are we going to be this year?’ and if we could’ve worked more competitively with them. I think that shows who we can be and the girls know that they could be that team.”

Their cooperation is very important for their success in this seasons games. As long as they stay together, don’t get down, their performance could be something that gets them through the losses and wins.

Make sure to come to our next game against our rivals the Bears from Rifle, co. at GSHS, 6:30 pm!
