Seen between parents Melanie and J.D., Ignacio Volleyball’s Laci Brunson is presented to fans filling IHS Gymnasium prior to Senior Night action against Dolores. Most recently, Brunson played in the 2022 Colorado Coaches of Girls’ Sports All-State Games’ Class 2A showcase match Sunday, November 20, at Fossil Ridge High School in Fort Collins, Colo. Coaching her and the nine-player 2A-Blue team were Lorrie Mahoney of San Juan Basin League rival Telluride, plus former THS standout Emily McNamee (née Langley). “That was great,” Mahoney said. “I’d never met Laci – obviously coached against her – but she was a great setter.” Brunson’s teammates also included THS’ Emma Righetti, Meeker’s Emma Luce, Hotchkiss North Fork’s Payton Carver, Sanford’s Alyssa Edgar, Edwards Vail Christian’s Grace Engleby, Kremmling West Grand’s Sage Lechman, plus Fowler’s Olivia Romero and Kiara Sharp.
