Lady Bulldogs Battle Lady Spartans On The Court
Connersville Steals varsity match, but Dogs take JV and Freshmen.Freshman from Coach Erin Trenkamp: The Bulldogs pulled the win away from Connersville again in two games. Shalee Harrington and Katie Bedel had 9pts each, Bailey Lare with 6pts. Belle Walters had a great day of setting for the Dogs. Set one was a score of 25-11 game two was 25-20!JV from Coach Shelly Prickel: The Batesville JV team overcame sluggish play to defeat Connersville 25-17, 25-24. Monica Gerstbauer scored 10 points to lead the team from the service line. Corrine Stone chipped in 7 points including 2 aces. Kelsey Shupe managed 7 kills in an inconsistent day at the net. The team’s record improves to 8-0.Varsity: Dogs Lose to Spartans 8-25, 25-20, 25-13, 16-25, 18-16. While the score shows a loss, the game film shows spots of brilliant physical play. Especially on defense again! We continue to make it a chore for teams to score on us. Even in our lost sets and matches the film shows volleys of 8-10 possessions each. Its hard for a youthfully experienced team to grasp this concept, however we are a hard team to beat! Our block really picked up in set four making the chore ahead of the Spartans tough. They had to take three to four chances at our block and then hope our diggers in the back court failed. It will be nice to finally get some practice time in next week to work on items after going 3-5 in under 12 days!Bulldogs travel to Lawrenceburg to face the lady tigers on Tuesday 8/29/17. JV first swings will be @ 5:00pm with Varsity to follow.Courtesy of Bulldogs Coach Jody Thomas.
