Lady Bulldogs win volleyball sectional


-- —

Junior Bailey Baumer was unstoppable. Sets were crisper and her power at the net took over.

The fifth set was tied at 2-2 when the attack began. Baumer kills on three of the next four points sparked a 6-2 lead. Two more Baumer kills countered a couple Lady Tiger points and the Batesville lead went to 9-4. A little handy work at the net by Morgan Dreyer made it 11-5.

The success was contagious and teammate Madi Oesterling did her part with a pair of kills to make it 13-8, which virtually sealed the deal. Batesville closed out the final set by a score of 15-10 before the celebration could begin.

Statistically, the Lady Bulldogs were led by Baumer with a total of 16 kills, while Oesterling finished with 10. Rylee Goldsmith did her part at the net as well with seven kills.

Baumer and Goldsmith shared team-high honors with 21 digs apiece followed by Morgan Dreyer with 18.

Dreyer and Katie Thomas handled the majority of the setting duties. Dreyer finished with 26 assists, while Thomas added 17.

Chelsey Paul was the top server with 15 points, including four aces.

Lady Bulldogs top Madison in five

The first of the two matches on Saturday was just as exciting if not more. The Lady Bulldogs were stretched deep into five sets by the Madison Lady Cubs before prevailing 24-26, 25-18, 12-25, 25-20 and 16-14.

“We were so keyed up to play Madison,” Paul commented. “We could not match up with their height so we had to be aggressive servers and attackers ... It was a real team effort led at the net by Bailey (Baumer) and Madi (Oesterling) did an excellent job serving.

“It was such a tiring physical and emotional game. I didn't know how we would come out in the finals,” she added.

Baumer pounded 24 kills over the five sets followed by Goldsmith with 10 and Dreyer with eight.

Oesterling led the team in service points with 16.
