It was a tough weekend for the La Veta Lady Redhawks in the Colorado 1A Championship Tournament. The La Veta squad lost two hard-fought matches on Thursday and Friday. First was a Thursday morning game against Dove Creek — a rematch of the previous weekend’s District Tourney. The Lady Redhawks won one set, but fell to Dove Creek 25-15, 25-11 22-25, 25-18. On Friday, La Veta faced number-two ranked Kit Carson, but lost in straight sets, 25-20, 25-11, 25-20.
