Mancos freshman Jessica Gutierrez (7) leads a triumphant shout after a score against Telluride during last Saturday’s 2A-District 3 Tournament ‘Pool 2’ play inside Ignacio Junior High School’s gym [Pool 1 was held inside Ignacio High’s venue]. After opening their postseason with a defeat of Nucla, MHS fell on hard times twice — five-set losses to THS, and to the host Volleycats in the third-place match — and ended their season at 12-10 overall.
