The freshman Bulldogs got the night started with a 2-1 victory over Jeff followed by a 2-0 victory by the JV team. The varsity match was a 5 set thriller with the Bulldogs edging the Devils 15-12 in the final set. The Bulldogs struggled to find their mojo early on. The sophomore class stepped up and lead by example in the 3rd and 4th sets. Ashlyn Clifton and Alexis Caldwell both recorded double-doubles and paced the bulldogs offensively. Bree Martin’s calm touch defensively helped keep the Bulldogs in rhythm and Ashlyn Clifton refused to let balls hit the ground when in the backcourt. Sawyer, Palmer, and Stivers all served very efficiently from the service line all night.
