The 7th grade gold volleyball team had a good game against Dexter. The Bulldogs made a great comeback in the first and second games with a run of serves by Paige Stacey and Mallore Downer. The two teams were neck and neck but Chelsea couldn’t quite pull off the win. Everyone played extremely well and put in tons of effort. Audrey Phillips, Jordan Seitz, Kylie Saxton, and Annie Nichols just to name a few, had key plays last night.
The 8th grade gold volleyball team won its first game, lost the second and almost won the third, losing 23-25 to Dexter. Leading servers for the night were Autumn Johnson, Anna Knight, and Cassie Lungo. Olivia Byrd had 2 great saves. Megan Harrington, Lily Francisco, Kourtney Long, and Hanna Stock each had 1. Sara Stribe and Autumn Johnson were strong all around with several spikes and kills. Every player contributed on the night. Good job, team.
