Smack attack

Mancos senior Megan Hess (10) pounds down a spike over Ignacio’s Miel Diaz (23) during the 2A-District 3 Tournament third-place match last Saturday night inside IHS Gymnasium. The Lady Jays’ season came to an end after a wild five-set loss [26-24, 12-25, 15-25, 25-18, 13-15] to the Volleycats, immediately after falling in five [25-20, 25-22, 14-25, 13-25, 9-15] to Telluride in the ‘Pool 2’ finale. MHS’ day began well, however, with a defeat of Nucla, and the team finished 2012 with a 12-10 overall record. Enlargephoto
