Doherty, Cheyenne Mountain claim state volleyball titles

November 10, 2012

Colorado Springs cemented its status as the state's volleyball mecca, producing the 5A and 4A state champions on Saturday night at Denver Coliseum.

In 5A, top-seeded Doherty crushed Grandview 25-17, 25-14, 25-15 for its first title since coach Tara Hittle led the Spartans to the title in 2003 as a player.

The wait between championships for Cheyenne Mountain in 4A was considerably shorter. The Indians held off area rival Lewis-Palmer 27-25, 21-25, 27-25, 25-17 to claim their fifth consecutive 4A crown and exact a bit of revenge after the Rangers had won the season's first meeting to take the Pikes Peak Athletic Conference crown.

The Pikes Peak region produced three of the four semifinalists in 4A (Coronado joining Lewis-Palmer and Cheyenne Mountain) and St. Mary's advanced through pool play in 3A to give the area five of the 12 semifinalists in 5A, 4A and 3A.
